Havelock Wool specializes in wool insulation, sourcing only the best fibers for use in their wool insulation. The fibers they use are a certain dynamic – sheared from a specific breed of sheep best suited for insulation.
Havelock Wool's products are all-natural, renewable, and sustainable in production, while also being compostable at the end of an extended useful life. Wool is inherently self-extinguishing and manages moisture against 65% relative humidity. When it comes to energy efficiency, their batts perform similarly to other forms of insulation with an R-value of 3.6 per inch. Unlike others, no protective clothing is required for installation and one can argue the process is even a bit of fun.
Havelock Wool's insulations are not made from wool scraps. Instead, they process high-quality wool fibers through their proprietary manufacturing process. This yields a uniform, high-performance, long-lasting product.
Wool’s natural structure makes it incredibly effective as an insulator. Each fiber of sheep wool is composed of protein molecules (keratin) organized into five follicles. These fibers effectively trap air, moisture and harmful chemicals. Using wool as insulation actually helps keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, while improving indoor air quality. Wool also exceeds other forms of insulation as an acoustic buffer.
