Natural Wool Insulation for Vans are thinner batts designed to fit in all the nooks, crannies, cracks, holes, and cavities in your van or trailer. Wool insulation batting from Havelock Wool is a chemical-free, passive filtration insulating material that manages moisture and reduces sound.
Havelock Wool's #Vanlife Insulation is compressed into bags and then boxed for easy shipping. Each bag contains 20 batts of insulation that are 2 inches thick and will cover about 100 SQFT of area at 2 inches thick. Batts are 48 inches long.

The chart below describes approximate amounts of wool needed to thoroughly insulate walls, ceilings, doors, cab, cracks, holes, channels and all those hard to reach spots in some common van models. Numbers are approximate and can vary based on your specific van build-out. Note, they do not include floor measurements. Please measure your specific van model for square footage and average cavity depth to be certain.

Benefits of wool
Sheep's wool insulation batts from Havelock Wool are made with 100% wool, no synthetic mix, and are bonded with a needle punch, not chemicals. At the end of its useful life, our wool is 100% compostable.
Filters air and improves indoor air quality
Harmful chemicals are in your walls. The amino acids in wool irreversibly bond with formaldehyde, NOₓ and SO2 on a molecular level. For example, tests carried out by the Central Testing Facility in Tokyo, Japan found that when formaldehyde was released into a chamber, wool was able to absorb 96% of the formaldehyde within several hours. This capability is unique to natural fibres.
Moisture and climate control
Moisture and mould happens in your walls. Wool can absorb moisture against 65% relative humidity.
Suppresses mold and mildew
Natural keratin prevents against the spread of mould and mildew.
Wool exceeds other forms of insulation as an acoustic buffer and is commonly used to naturally enhance the acoustic properties of a building.
Wool batts are industry standard at R-3.6 per inch; loose-fill outperforms at R-4.3 per inch.
Wool will not support a flame below 1100ºF (593ºC). Havelock wool conforms to Class A of the ASTM E84 test.
Wool insulation is entirely renewable, biodegradable, and sustainable. It takes approximately 10% of the embodied energy it takes to manufacture fibreglass insulation.
Inherent characteristics allow stated R-values to exceed other forms of insulation.
Natural characteristics make our insulation devoid of harmful chemicals.
Blow-in and batts are installed like other mediums but with no special protection required.
