With +60 million sheep in New Zealand its no wonder we use it a LOT for insulating our homes.
Designed for use in new and existing buildings within the loft, rafter, internal wall, and inter-floor use. Wool insulation is ideal for dry lining on external walls and throughout all parts of wooden framed buildings.
Sheep Wool insulation is one of the best ways to help increase the energy efficiency of the home. One of the most natural and sustainable ways to insulate your property is to use sheep wool insulation. Most of us are familiar with the woollen jumper (jersey) but now you can actually use sheep wool insulation to help keep your home warm in the winter and cooler in the summer!
Sheep wool insulation has a thermal conductivity of between 0.035 – 0.04 W/mK, whereas typical mineral wool has a thermal conductivity of 0.044 W/mK.
Sheep wool is proven to absorb and neutralise harmful substances – the wool is a natural protein made up of a number of different amino acid chains (18 to be exact!) of which 60% have a reactive side chain.
Sheep wool can absorb 33% of its weight in moisture without compromising its insulating ability. The core of the sheep wool fibre is hygroscopic, meaning that it will absorb water vapour – making it perfect in the loft space where you tend to encounter more condensation.
Sheep wool offers fantastic acoustic insulation – far better than comparable insulating materials.

Hemp Technologies Global has been involved with growing, processing and building with Industrial Hemp for more than a decade. We use the whole plant for food, fuel, shelter, clothing and health. We built the first permitted hemp homes in USA, Australia and New Zealand and we're pretty proud of that fact.
We only offer hemp products we have grown, processed and made ourselves so we can be sure of the ingredients and processes - we don't sell what we won't use ourselves.
