Material of the Month: March 2016 – Recycled Cotton Insulation

Why it’s inspired us…

This insulation, is a thermal and accoustic soft insulation material made from recycled cotton denim. this great material can be used in Lofts, Timber Framed Walls and Sarking.
The material is air and water vapour permeable.

Why we’d like it to inspire you…

With a material so soft like a newborn lamb, rabbit or a hare and the month of March now upon us, we look to the words of John Skelton (Replycacion, 1528: ‘Aiii, I saye, thou madde Marche Hare”), referencing the season where Hares dance and jump wild in the countryside.
This was later noted by Lewis Carroll in Alice’s adventures of wonderland where the Hare was depicted as character Thackery Earwicket.

Spring is on its way…
