Sheep wool insulation is the eco-friendly way to save time and money using a natural, sustainable and abundant resource!  The advantages of using natural sheep wool insulation are also abundant. Sheep Wool is:

Fire and vermin resistant

Non-toxic

Resists mold growth

Acoustically superior

A naturally “green”, energy-saving product

Eliminates voids and air pockets common with other insulation materials

Reduces air infiltration and increases the “effective R-value”

In addition, this type of insulation doesn’t settle or compress. That’s critical because many forms of loose insulation settle over time, resulting in air gaps and spaces that seriously reduce the effective insulation capability.

Because of their crimped nature, when wool fiber is packed together, it forms millions of tiny air pockets which trap air, and in turn serves to keep warmth in during winter and out in the summer.  The crimp in the wool fiber forces each strand to bump up against each other, as opposed to lining up side by side or laying down flat together. This keeps the tiny air pockets intact, acting as little insulators – the key to being able to keep you both warm and cool

Contractors and do-it-yourselvers like to use natural wool insulation is safer to install and requires no special safety equipment.
