Breathable / Natural / Non-Toxic  insulations

Breathable / natural / non-toxic insulations

The first was Warmcel but then quickly lots of other ones followed, particularly the variety of wood fibres.

Now we can solve all energy, maintenance, breathability / air quality / toxicity problems in one go and that’s a big deal.
