Decide the best way to insulate your van
– Insulate the most difficult and hard to reach gaps.
– The best insulation value possible because all cavities (including uneven ones) are completely filled.
– The structure of the knops are incredibly resistant to compression or slumping, so you never end up with gaps from road vibration.
– The down side … takes a little more time to install, and a bit more messy, but the results are awesome.
– Insulate quickly and in one piece with 2″ wool batts.
-The fastest and easiest way to insulate your van.
-The convenient size of the Woolen Van Blanket allows you to insulate your van in just a few steps
– You can canvas large areas in a single piece with a Woolen Van Blanket
-Save time insulating your van.
— The down side … Where batt seams meet, there is the possibility of a gap and slumping if the installation is not correct.
– Traditional wool batting is the most used product so far for van insulation, schoolies, and tiny homes, and the results are incredible.
-These batts have a smaller size that allows you to adapt in a more personalized way to the design of your van. They are convenient if you are installing them alone.
– The need for insulation may vary depending on the structure. By insulating with smaller pieces you can secure the most complicated areas in a more careful way and in several pieces.
The design of these traditional batts ensures effective insulation in all corners of your van.

Joseph at wool.life has been great to work with. He knew exactly how much wool to send us for our extended Promaster, and was there to answer any questions along the way. Definitely recommend them to insulate your van, or house!

Yes, it sure does!
Our wool is washed with a very small amount (0.25% by weight) of a non-ionic and non-toxic insect repellant so that moths and carpet beetles will not destroy it. This product, called Eulan SPA, is based on the chrysanthemum plant and is a liquid detergent added to the final scouring (cleaning) stage of the wool. It is absorbed into the inner core of the wool fiber, so it is not a topical deterrent or powder. We’re happy to share the full spec sheet with you and answer any questions if you have them.
We NEVER use boric acid because of the health concerns associated with it. Companies that treat with boric acid usually treat with a very high level, 1% by volume, which is 8% by weight.
We keep all of our products stocked well ahead of time so that we can ship immediately! We don’t want to hold up progress on your van build, so as soon as you order, we ship out your wool the following business day. Transit times with UPS are generally 2-4 business days, depending on where you are.
Many of our customers use a spray adhesive to install traditional batts to walls and ceilings. Others use string interwoven through the vans framing and rivet holes to hold the batts in place until the paneling is installed.
The loose fill wool is attached to walls and ceilings by first installing a fabric mesh on your stud walls. Then the wool is blown into the cavity with a vacuum blower (Black & Decker Leaf Vacuum/Blower) and some shop vac hose. Here’s a link to our install page on all things loose fill knops!
At first, installing the loose fill knops might seem a little intimidating, but the install process is actually quite smooth and simple, and has several advantages over the batt that make your van more comfortable. The first advantage is that the cavities are completely filled (which means more and better acoustic and thermal insulation). Secondly, the knops will never settle with road vibration as the knops are tangled together and constantly trying to expand if they have the room to. Here’s a link to our install page on all things loose fill knops!
We stay away from Boric Acid because of the negative health effects associated with it. In December of 2010, the E.U. reclassified the ‘Borate’ group of chemicals that borax belongs to as a Substance Of Very High Concern (SVHC) due to its potential to be hazardous to reproductive health.
Borates have been classified as carcinogenic, mutagenic, or toxic for reproduction. Europe is usually several years ahead of America in regards to health (ie. GMOs are banned in Europe). Boric Acid has also been completely banned in Australia.
When Boric Acid is used in wool, it has to be applied at very high levels — 1% by volume, which is actually 8% by weight. This means that for every 100 pounds of “wool”, 8 pounds of it will be Boric Acid.

Efficient, long term insulation
we guarantee it
Because of the astonishing durability and functionality of wool, coupled with some innovation, we offer a 30-year warranty on all of our wool products. Places like Buckingham Palace have kept wool installed in good condition for more than 200 years, but insurance companies don’t like us to give 200-year warranties!
It’s safe to say that the long-lasting performance of our insulation will far outlive the van or skoolie it’s installed in.
If you are not completely satisfied with the product, we will refund your money with no questions asked.
