Recycled sheep's Wool Insulation for New Zealand

ecofleece® is a BRANZ Appraised NZ made insulation - consisting of coloured sheep's wool sourced from New Zealand wool product manufacturers and blended with polyester fibres creating a soft, easy to handle, environmentally friendly product. ecofleece® complies with the insulation standard AS/NZS 4859.1.

Product detail

Supplied as a blanket ready to roll out over ceiling joists or fitted under or between floor joists, rolls are cut to length when fitting to wall framing cavities. Special runs can be manufactured to order a roll width of up to 1.8 metres is possible.

Identifying it

Recyled ecofleece® insulation is grey. ecofleece® packs are labelled to identify the specific R-value, coverage per pack in square metres (m2), material width, unit number or length of material, nominal thickness, minimum weight and date of manufacture.

How much do I need?

Coverage per pack of ecofleece® insulation depends on the product and its thickness. Typical roll lengths and coverage per pack are summarized in spec sheets

Where can it be used?

ecofleece® can be installed in:

  • walls
  • ceilings (single and double layer systems)
  • mid-floors (for thermal and acoustic solutions)
  • internal partitions

  • ecofleece insulation is recommended not be installed if the moisture content of timber framing can build up to or exceed 24%. Around areas of high humidity, such as swimming pool halls or saunas, ecofleece insulation must be isolated from the moisture by a suitable vapour barrier. ecofleece® should be installed within six months of manufacturing - check the label for date.


    ecofleece® and its packaging is recyclable. Recycled ecofleece® reuses waste New Zealand sheep's wool as an integral part of product manufacture.
