What is the Advantage on Pure Wool
Pure Wool Life Insulation is an Improved performance Natural Wool Insulation, that the R-value is increased. The other major advantage is that Pure Wool Life Insulation will not maintain a flame at a temperature below 1,200°F without the use of any chemicals, whereas other natural wool insulation products often need the addition of chemicals such as Boric Acid to pass the flame tests. This is because Pure Wool Life Insulation uses a unique processing method of fiber entanglement. Pure Wool Insulation does not contain any harsh chemicals and is the only totally 100% green insulation on the market. When crimped wool fibers are entangled together, they form millions of tiny air pockets which trap air. These tiny pockets are what keep sheep warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This natural adaption works in the same manner to insulate your building or home. Read full article

The Parliament in the UK Remodeled with Wool Insulation
Leeds University was commissioned to evaluate insulation options for the British Houses of Parliament. They concluded that wool provided the most benefits, not only for thermal insulation but to reduce the opportunity for the very ancient building. No other form of insulation could meet the same level of requirement. The work is now underway. On opening the area to be insulated it was found that wool had originally been used some 150 years ago. It was still in excellent condition.
Josh Laney testimonial
"I had recently added to my home and needed to get the addition insulated. I have had a construction company the past 18 years and built custom homes and high end remodels. I choose to go with Pure Wool Life Insulation. I was very surprised with all the attributes of using wool as insulation. Far more than all the other products on the market.
As more than a year has passed since I installed the Pure Wool Life Insulation in my addition, I could not be more satisfied with its performance. My power bill is so much better is the largest plus but the addition that I installed this in, which has the least amount of cooling, has shown to be the most comfortable room in the house and stays the most constant temperature. I could not be happier!"

Wool is an excellent insulator for historical preservation because it has a "Higher real-world insulation value" plus it is reversible. This is very important because unlike Spray Foam, Wool won't affect the original structure of an old building, keeping its old building value.
Old houses are insulated with wool to maintain the integrity of the original structure and achieve the highest insulation value possible, as well as achieving all the advantages PURE WOOL LIFE INSULATION offers, like fire resistance, air cleaning, moisture control, bug resistance and contribution to global warming efforts reducing Co2 in the atmosphere.
