Sheeps Wool Loft Insulation

Sheeps wool insulation has been used for thousands of years and is one of the most natural forms of insulation available. The natural wavy structure of sheeps wool means that it has numerous pockets of air trapped within it, which reduces heat and sound transfer, keeping the building warmer in the winter and cooler in summer, as well as reducing the amount of noise that travels into the building.

Here at Roofing Superstore we offer a range of sheeps wool insulation in a variety of thicknesses, shapes and rolls or slabs, from reputable suppliers such as Thermafleece and SheepWool.

Benefits of sheeps wool insulation

Sheeps wool is completely sustainable and environmentally friendly – sheep are sheared once a year and are not harmed in the production of wool so is a great option for environmentally conscious homes. It also requires much less energy to produce compared with other insulation materials. 

Additionally, sheeps wool is not itchy, unlike many other insulation alternatives, so does not need extra precautions when installing to prevent major skin irritation.

Sheeps wool is hygroscopic, which means that it absorbs water vapour, and can absorb up to 25% of its weight in moisture before it affects the thermal efficiency. It will also release moisture into the air if the surrounding air is less humid, which means it controls humidity within your home.

Another benefit of sheeps wool is that it absorbs pollutants and chemicals when air passes through, purifying the air that enters your home. In a world that is increasingly focused on health and chemicals, this can be seen as a massive benefit.
