Frequently Asked Questions

While many types of insulation are made from glass wool or fibreglass batts, Insulwool products are made from wool, the only natural “purpose made” fibre that is universally used for warmth and comfort in many modern products such as carpets, rugs, fabrics, bedding, upholstery and clothing. Natural wool insulation is safe for you and for your environment.  Click here for more information.

Insulwool is unique in that it is durable and yet so luxurious to handle. It can absorb sound, is fire resistant and non-corrosive, and can absorb and desorb moisture (moisture is not trapped or retained). Insulwool products make your home or building warmer in winter and cooler in summer, with increased savings on your energy account. It also acts as a humidity controller and pollution and toxin filter.

The R stands for Resistance, which is a measure of how well insulation can resist heat flow. The R-value depends on the type of material, its density and thickness.
The higher the R-Value, the greater the resistance to heat gain in the summer months,  and heat loss during winter months.
