Terra Lana is so safe that it is manufactured & installed without any protective clothing or mask. The fibres in wool are too large to be a respiratory threat, and if inhaled, they break down easily because they are a natural organic protein. 

Detoxifying


Healthy indoor air quality

Sick Building Syndrome is a well-documented illness caused by toxins such as formaldehyde emitted from common building materials. Wool can absorb toxic vapours from building materials by trapping them within its cellular structure for a healthier, non-irritating and non-toxic building environment, thus filtering the air you breathe.

Warm, Dry, Healthy Home


Well insulated homes are much better for your health 

New Zealand has one of the highest rates of asthma and respiratory illness in the OECD countries, with a proven relationship to cold, damp homes.Research shows poorly insulated houses lead to many health issues such as asthma, bronchitis, rheumatic fever and infectious skin diseases. 

The structure of sheep wool fibre is hygroscopic, meaning it can absorb & release moisture in the form of vapour - mitigating against the risk of condensation in a home.
