    Hi Pic
    First farm in the cold, high country of Vic we owned, the house was found to be without insulation, so part of our first wool clip I hauled up into the ceiling and spread it out for insulation (Border Leicester wool was close to worthless in those days). Wool is very fire resistant when processed, but not sure about raw when still infused with lanolin.
    That house burnt to the ground 10 years later on account of my bad habit of emptying my ashtray into the bin before bed . Was saved by the fire alarm and ever since every house I've ever owned has sported no less than 20 alarms. Drives Consuela nuts when I make toast - music to my ears; alarms and Consuela both .
