Natural blown wool – why choose anything else for your insulation?
Blown-in sheep’s wool is a renewable resource which is not only natural but is also
ecologically and environmentally friendly. What’s more, because there are no harmful
particles floating in the atmosphere, it’s kind to your health. The natural resilience
of wool means it has the ability to out-perform other products.
So how is wool insulation installed?
The wool is quite literally blown into your roof cavity which means that it actually
reaches all the outer extremities of your roof. This creates an effective means of
preventing heat loss from gaps between ceiling joists and ensures full coverage.
It can also form a cosy top-up over existing insulation materials.
How does it work?
Insulation is all about trapping air within the insulation material. Because of its
crimp, wool will not compress which means it is able to retain the air trapped within
it. The finer the crimp, the more air can be trapped. This improves and extends the
useful life of wool insulation.
Because wool can easily absorb moisture from the air, it is the only insulation product
that can react to atmospheric changes - and most particularly changes in humidity.
At times of high humidity wool will absorb moisture from the atmosphere but, more
importantly, it will release it back into the atmosphere when humidity levels fall.
Because this happens in vapour form, you will enjoy a warm, dry and healthy environment.

thereby reducing your heating bills?

Wool also absorbs sound effectively, so works very well between the floor and the
