Why Should I Use Wool?

Key Points:
Material Advantages
  • Wool is natural, renewable and sustainable
  • Sheep Wool Insulation is perfectly safe to touch and requires no specialised safety clothing or equipment, making it easy to install
  • It causes no irritation to the eyes, skin or lungs and wool fibres present no hazard to your health
  • Wool fibres are breathable, meaning they can absorb and release moisture without reducing thermal performance unlike fibre glass based products
  • Wool does not support combustion and will extinguish itself in the event of fire
  • Sheep Wool Insulation does not settle due to the high elasticity of the wool fibres ensuring no loss of performance over time

Saving Energy
  • Wool is designed by nature to save energy
  • Sheep Wool Insulation also requires only a fraction of the energy to produce compared to that of man made counterparts
  • This means that Sheep Wool Insulation will pay back its energy costs more than 5 times sooner (only 15 kW of energy are used to produce 1 m³)

Performance Benefits
  • Wool has a higher fire resistance than cellulose and cellular plastic insulation
  • It does not burn, but instead singes away from fire and extinguishes itself (Wool has a very high inflammation point of 560°C due to its high Nitrogen content of ~16%) Wool is self extinguishing because of its high Limiting Oxygen Index (LOI=25.2), which means to completely burn wool an oxygen content of 25.2% is necessary whereas air only has 21%
  • Wool fibres are hygroscopic by nature, meaning they can absorb up to 35% of their own weight from the surrounding atmosphere depending on the humidity, helping to preserve the surrounding timbers.
  • While absorbing this moisture, wool releases energy in the form of heat, thus raising the temperature of its surrounding areas. Naturally releasing this moisture in the warmer seasons, wool creates a cooling effect on the same surroundings.
  • Sheep Wool Insulation rolls are produced to standard width requirements – saving time when fitting
  • Multiple layered wool fibres effectively reduce airborne sound transfer
