Sheep have been adapting to severe climatic environments for thousands of years. Over such time, their wool has evolved to offer protection from the elements of each season – hot and cold; damp and dry. Simultaneously, man has come to understand the benefits of wool and created numerous applications for its inherent advantages. Wool’s five follicles and natural crimp, trap air, moisture and harmful chemicals so as to improve air quality while keeping warmth inside during winter and outside over the summer months. Wool is a natural insulator but only minimally applied to living spaces – until now.

Wool's Benefits 


ALL NATURAL - Wool insulation is entirely renewable and sustainable

MOISTURE CONTROL -  Wool naturally manages moisture levels against 65% relative humidity

FIRE RESISTANT -  Wool is inherently known to extinguish after smoldering 

LONG LASTING - Extensive useful life

NO HARMFUL CHEMICALS - Natural characteristics allow our insulation to be devoid of harmful chemicals

NOISE REDUCTION  - Wool creates acoustic advantages in minimizing airborne sound

DISPOSAL - Wool insulation can be composted at the end of an extended useful life

INSTALLATION - Blow-in and batts are installed like other mediums but with no protection required


Wool's Construction

Principal components are protein molecules, or Keratin. Each is made of hundreds of amino acid units that bind together in a way that allows for wool's unique characteristics

A wool fibre is resilient and elastic; it can be bent on itself over 20,000 times, yielding a longer life than most fibres

The scaled structure allows for absorption and retention of airborne dust.  The helical nature also lends to enhanced sound absorption

Volatile chemicals, such as formaldehyde, are naturally consumed from the atmosphere and retained

Wool's principal component being Keratin means it is biodegradable
