Hello Barbara,
people have made mistakes with sheepwool insulation, just as with chaff
( is that the right word for grain shells ?) and other organic
materials. We all know, that organic materials are very sympathetic to
ALL liveforms; not only to humans.
We need to understand  wool like we need to understand straw, before we
can use it without any risk.
Industrially processed sheepswool is clean, easy to handle and does not
smell a lot.
Cheers, Harald
