Natural wool insulation in batts
Our natural wool insulation in batts is all-natural, renewable and sustainable in it’s production, while being compostable at the end of an extended useful life. Wool is inherently self-extinguishing and manages moisture against 65% relative humidity. When it comes to energy efficiency, our batts perform similarly to other forms of insulation with an R-value of 3.6 per inch. Unlike others, no protective clothing is required for installation and one can argue the process is even a bit of fun.
Our natural wool batt insulation takes a rectangular shape and it is designed to slide into the cavity of your interior walls. It is the cheapest and most common type available in the market. The efficacy of wool batt insulation is increasingly scrutinized by industry practitioners though the ease of install will allow for its dominant usage to persist.
Wool insulation batts are typically cut at 48” and may need to be stretched slightly upon removal from packaging. Unfaced batts are applied with friction and are resistant to slumping but a staple may be added at the installers discretion to further avoid voids in the insulation developing over time. Wire or lightning rods may be used in a ceiling joist or with metal framing. This video covers all aspects of batt installation: tools and materials needed, job site preparation and technique.
