Natural Wool Insulation Batting
Natural Wool Insulation Batting is designed to fit between vertical timber framing, or lay in a blanket form. The batting comes in a variety of widths, thicknesses, and R-values to suit most building construction.
Sheep's wool insulation is:
• fire and vermin resistant
• resistant to mold growth
• acoustically superior
Health and Safety
Wool insulation contains naturally-occurring Boron salts, giving it excellent lifetime resistance to pests and improving its inherent resistance to fire.
Plus, natural wool insulation is safer to install and requires no special safety equipment. Since all the components are 100% natural, there is no need for breathing nor eye protection, you don’t even have to wear gloves!
Resistance to mold and fungus
Wool naturally resists mold and fungus due to its natural moisture transfer properties. Wool insulation allows your home to breathe by absorbing moisture, air-borne chemicals, and odours and transferring them to outside as temperatures change. A permeable house wrap applied under exterior siding provides for this passive exchange.
Tests carried out by the Central Testing Facility in Tokyo, Japan found that when formaldehyde was released into a chamber, wool was able to absorb 96% of the formaldehyde within several hours. This capability is unique to natural fibers.
Wool Insulation products naturally enhance the acoustic properties of a building.
Sheep's wool insulation is energy efficient, using approximately 10% of the embodied energy it takes to manufacture fiberglass insulation. Is is also 100% sustainable, biodegradable, and renewable.
Natural Wool Insulation Batting is priced per roll.
