    i posted on here about wool as insulation a while ago after doing some research i did find that wool has a higher clo then primaloft but you would have to get a dedicated supplier of brand new virgin wool in its most puffy form to keep the weight down

    There is a place in the UK selling wadding for home crafts - cushions, pillows, toys etc. Amongst the line up is merino wadding. Looks very similar to polyester wadding (primaloft etc) but is merino wool.

    If you can find out how thick then we would be able to make a good comparison against primaloft or the like
