Natural Wool Insulation

Insulknop WL 5825

Specially designed for Vans

"We started our van build and used the wool in all the places where we could. Before we could finish the installation we had to hit the road for a trip. We drove about 2000 miles with just the wool stuffed into the holes of our van and we were really impressed with how much it stayed in place. Now this was a completely ridiculous thing to do. We didn’t cover up the holes at all and we were just curious how it would work out. And to be honest it worked out way better than we thought. I actually have total faith in this product. And I’m glad that we went with this over the traditional bats."

Additional information

Weight 17 lbs
Dimensions 18 × 18 × 18 in
Materials

100% Natural Sheep’s and Lamb’s wool from the rolling hills and IWTO Certified Farms of New Zealand.

All wool is treated with something to deter insects at the scouring stage, whether it is going to be a garment, bedding, etc. We have control of our whole process, so we treat the wool with a very small amount (0.25%) of a non toxic insect repellant called Eulan SPA.

This is applied to the wool as a liquid detergent at the final scouring stage, and is absorbed into the inner core of the wool fiber. Eulan SPA was developed specifically for use with wool products, and protects the wool from damage caused by moths and carpet beetles. We do not use ANY Boric Acid, because of the negative health effects associated with it.

Companies that treat with boric acid usually treat with a very high level, 8% by weight (1% by volume).

Safety

Because of small fibers, the use of dust masks is recommended when blowing in the loose fill wool.

No gloves are necessary.

Color

The color of the wool may vary slightly.

    I came across Wool Life when I was looking for chemical-free insulation. It feels so good and is so clean! I also love the sound absorption. I love this wool!

Installing wool in your van is easy and efficient. In short, secure our fiber mesh to the studs of the van, then blow in the wool with a leaf blower! If that sounds crazy, we will gladly walk you through it and provide pictures and videos.

Don’t worry about about breathing boric acid or any other harmful chemicals (because there aren’t any), and you don’t even need to wear gloves when installing. Our wool is a blend of lambs’ and sheep’s that doesn’t itch. 

Once it’s installed in the walls, the wool will still grow by 20%, filling perfectly all the cavities even if they look uneven at first. Then it’s time to adventure!

How Much Wool You Need

Most vans have about a 2-inch cavity depth that you can fill with insulation. If you are securing the mesh right against the van’s metal framing, then a 2-inch covering will do nicely. If you are framing it out a bit with wood, then you can figure for a 2.23” to 2.7” coverage — this also will ensure that you have enough wool to fill gaps in the doors and other hard to reach places. Filling in those pockets will keep your van from sounding tinny and rattly and give you a solid, tight sound and feel.

Here is a chart to give you an idea of how much wool you will need.

If you have a van model that’s not on the chart,, use this formula to calculate how much you need:

[150 ft box] 1 box will cover 150 sq/ft at 1 inch thick

[450 ft box] 1 box will cover 450 sq/ft at 1 inch thick

Measure your walls, floor, and ceiling to get your square footage.

If you have 300 sq/ft in your van, and you didn’t add a lot of framing, you can go with 2 inches of insulation on average. You would need 300sq/ft x 2 inches = 600.

You will want to match that 600 as close as you can, so that would be 1 [450 ft box] and 1 [150 ft box], to fill all you need.

Add one box of mesh, this is enough to completely cover any model VAN

Then you’re good to go!

FAQs

Initially, the installation of the knops is a little more laborious than the batt, but has several advantages over the batt that make the VAN more comfortable. The first one is that the cavities are completely filled (which means better insulation). The second one is that the knops will not settle with road vibration.

Yes we sell Batt Blankets Wool Insulation in one large, convenient piece (7’ by 5’ 8”)

No confusing puzzle assembly, no gaps from road vibration.

Pesticides are used in sheep to control ticks. They last in the wool for a maximum of 8 weeks. Shearing of the sheep is not allowed for at least 12 weeks after the application of any pesticide, ensuring that there are no chemicals on the fiber.

Some people think that they are allergic to wool, but wool is a protein, just like our fingernails! The perception that wool can create allergies is not correct. The reason why some people have that perception is because they have had coarse wool clothing that is not suited for wearing in direct contact with the skin. Our wool is a special blend that does not belong to the itchy category, and is ideally suited to the products we manufacture.

Wool is washed with a non-ionic environmentally friendly detergent to clean it from any soil and grease that builds up during the period it grows on the free range sheep. No harmful chemicals need to be added.

When you compare the coverage at 2 inches thick, the higher R-Value knops are cheaper than wool batts. With loose fill, you can completely fill uneven wall cavities, and if you are framing it out and have a thicker area to fill, you may end up using more wool — but you’ll also get more insulation, acoustic value, moisture regulation, and comfort.
