Wool makes a unique insulator.

Christine Armstrong found a unique way to recharge a sagging British wool economy. Christine is the inventor of Thermafleece, which uses wool from British hill sheep to create an exceptionally efficient insulation material in both new buildings and remodeling projects that is absolutely safe to use.

Thermafleece is breathable and can absorb moisture with no loss of thermal efficiency, which is one reason why it is so effective at keeping houses warm in winter. It also releases moisture under warm conditions so it actually helps to keep houses cool in summer.

The production of Thermafleece takes a fraction of the energy required to produce glass fiber insulation. It is completely safe to handle, is recyclable and will remain effective as an insulant for the life of the building.

It's also fire resistant. Wool has a higher fire resistance than cellulose and cellular plastic insulants; it does not burn but rather melts away from an ignition source and extinguishes itself. Thermafleece is treated with a fire-proofing agent to improve its intrinsic fire resistance achieving results of zero for ignability, spread of flame and heat evolved.
