Official CSIRO Research Proves Better Performance of Wool Insulation :
“Wool insulation performs better because of its ability to rapidly absorb and desorb moisture from the air. The release of moisture by wool insulation results in the cooling of the fibre mass. So when the outside temperature increases and begins to heat the wool, it desorbs or releases moisture which has a cooling effect on the fibre. This improves the ability of the fibre mass to reduce the flow of heat from outside to inside the building.” (Media release 2/93 CSIRO)
