Using natural sheep’s wool as insulation – a practice Emmerson Critchley Ltd upholds to this day – has been around for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Consider the incredible hanging tapestries depicting intricate hunting scenes: historically, these were fashioned with wool and hung within notable houses and palaces not only to provide opulent decoration but also as a means of retaining heat. Nowadays, sheep’s wool insulation – often made from British wool – comes in rolls or slabs and can be used in both walls and roofs.
Sheep’s wool has provided effective warmth for flocks of animals for generations, so employing it as an insulator for houses makes logical sense. As a natural option, products made using sheep’s wool are also more sustainable than the synthetic alternatives – another reason the team at Emmerson Critchley Ltd uses it.
