Insulation is the nation’s leading and most highly experienced provider of loose-fill, blown-in wool insulation material. This new initiative makes the products readily available to the east coast market.
Until now, natural wool blown-in insulation was only available from suppliers on the west coast, adding untenable shipping costs, and consuming valuable time on your project.
“100% Natural Insulation is the most sought after green building product in the trend toward more environmentally sound, sustainable, and efficient use of ‘Green’ building materials. Our products satisfy the growing demand for materials that are both environmentally sound AND efficient,” says Bob Johnson, General Manager at Mid Atlantic.
“The movement toward 100% natural insulation has continued to gain momentum, and has received national notoriety in major publications like the Wall Street Journal, as well as feature articles on local and national TV coast to coast,” according to Charles Clarke, national sales manager for the company.
Tom Miller, production and quality assurance manager at Mid Atlantic says: “Sheep wool has long been recognized as a highly effective and efficient insulating material, but until we perfected the process to assure fire resistance and the ability to be blown-in with existing commercial equipment its only form was in batting.” Miller goes on to say that “While batting insulation is highly appropriate for some applications, it is more expensive to manufacture, handle, and ship.”
Ever since introducing its line of natural insulation products, Mid Atlantic Insulation has received hundreds of questions from homeowners and contractors. "We recently decided the best way to educate as many people as possible about the advantages of our products was to offer a free sample of our sheep wool insulation," said Johnson.

Wool insulation, with its unique fiber qualities, is naturally fire resistant. Untreated wool fiber will not support open flame. “Mid Atlantic’s loose fill insulation is treated, just as most insulation products, with a chemical solution to make it even more fire resistant. The difference is that our treatments are not petro-chemicals, they are natural chemicals from the earth. Petrochemicals emit Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s); things like formaldehyde, benzene, and methane; not materials you would like to inhale on a daily basis,” according to Johnson.
When asked about the application/installation of their wool insulation, Clarke says, “there is really no difference in how the products are applied or installed as compared to conventional loose-fill materials. The identical equipment and methods are utilized.” He goes on to say that the sound absorption qualities of wool are far superior to fiberglass, and ground up newspaper (cellulose). “Our material is not only of a slightly higher R-value, but also does not settle over time. This provides a longer lasting air seal in addition to a more complete seal. We have already discussed the health related issues and would add that another of wool’s unique characteristics is its ability to absorb, and desorbs up to 1/3 of its weight in moisture. Try spraying water on your cellulose insulation…up to one third of its weight.”
