Wool Rope for Insulating laterals
This is for 10 pounds of the original ‘Wool Rope’…actually fluffy wool ‘rovings’ in a long strip about 2-3″ wide and 1″ tall.
Next shipment should arrive early November…contact us to get on the ‘wait’ list.
Wool Insulation is treated with borates to (hopefully) prevent pest infestation and to promote weather resistance.
- Insulation ‘rovings’ are a continuous ‘sausage’ of wool.
- Generally they uncoil out of a bag, which holds 10 lbs of wool.
- This works out to be approximately 400 ft of roping insulation per bag.
Wool insulation is used in buildings – especially log homes.
- 1 pound of roping insulation will do approximately 40 feet of chinking gap or lateral cut. (If you’re chinking a house, and the wool happens to be exposed in some areas, it’s best to cover the wool with some Backer Rod to make the chinking trowel easier and work better).
To determine the amount you may need, take the linear log length total and divide by 40. This will equal the approximate number of pounds of roping needed. Some folks double layer it in wider grooves. Add 10-15% extra to be sure you have enough and any leftovers can either be used in another structure, or laid into the ceiling to increase the insulation effect in the ceilings…or used around the door and window openings.
Shipping Notes; This item is ‘bulky’ for it’s weight, thus there is an ‘bulky item’ fee on it’s own shopping cart line showing the increase in shipping.
