About our Pastures

We started out raising sheep and wanted to do something different with our wool. We heard how wool insulation was catching on in Europe and Japan, and realized there was a need for a natural and healthy insulation alternative here in North America too. Wool, however, cannot be used in its naturalstate or the new home owner will have the greatest moth collection you could imagine! So in the production process, our wool insulation is treated with Boron to repel mice, moths, mildew and insects.

Rope or Batts

Use wool rope to insulate:

Use rope wool to insulate between the logs of log homes.
It may also be used around windows and doors of any style home.
  • laterals (grooves)
  • notches

Use wool batts to insulate:

Batts are preferred in the notches of log homes. They are also used in the ceilings, walls & floors of frame & timber-frame homes. The batts come pre-cut for 16" or 24" centers, and are either 3.5 inches thick at R-13 or 5.25 inches thick at R-19.
  • peak walls
  • notches
  • attics
  • floor

Wool Batts in Frame Homes

Our wool batts are easily cut to size with an Olfa 2" rotary cutter available at most fabric stores or sharp sewing scissors will also do. For off-size spaces they should be cut slightly wider than the space needed between studs so they friction-fit in the space. You may put a staple at the top on each side if needed to hold it in place when fitting them into a wall. They may be used in ceilings walls and floors, and also do a nice job in Timber-framed homes.We now offer these batts pre-cut to your choice of either 16" or 24" centers and they are in 24' rolls. They come in 2" thicknesses and may be layered to fill walls, floors and roofs. Every inch equals about 3.8R value.If you choose to not use a plastic vapor barrier you can hold batts in a wall as seen below by using string and a stapler. Be sure to have you building inspector's approval to not use a vapor barrier!
