In order to reuse this forgotten noble material, Woolconcept has spent more than five years in development, and surrounding itself with Belgian partners, to create manufacturing processes that combine nature and state-of-the-art technology, and has established a local community of wool suppliers aimed at different sectors.
Loose wool is used for filling cavities by hand, or manually placing on the floor in lofts. It is effective natural insulation that is healthy and has a very small environmental impact. Furthermore, sheep’s wool is produced locally and does not require significant transport. The embodied energy consumed by sheep’s wool is 55 kWh/m³, from extraction to recycling, including its transformation.
Softlan loose wool is manufactured in Belgium from locally sourced materials and using techniques that have been perfected over centuries. It is a reflection of the Belgian landscape, character and dedication to high-quality design and production.

Wool fabric/Sheep’s wool
Sheep’s wool has very good sound-absorption properties, for a wide range of situations that require high-level performance. Equip acoustic ceilings with special Belgolan acoustic padding so that you can conduct important meetings in peace and quiet and without losing focus. Woolconcept products are increasingly popular among contemporary architects, building engineers and construction foremen for schools, office buildings, conference rooms and private homes as sound insulation inside installation gaps and suspended ceilings – and for good reason too.
The secret lies in keratin, the building block of the proteins that make up sheep’s wool. The molecules in the side branches of the amino acid are able to assimilate and neutralise harmful substances, such as formaldehyde. This results in a chemical reaction in which the pollutants are bound to these molecules or transformed.
