Wool Batts in Frame Homes

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!
