We have an old Victorian-style home built in 1915 in Minnesota.
In remodeling our bathroom, after removing the plaster, we observed
batt-style insulation between the lath and outside shiplap sheathing.
The insulation is approximately 1-1/2" thick.
It looks like brown wool with pieces of twine mixed in it.
The insulation is covered on both sides with brown paper,
and it is stiched with a heavy string.
Anyone know what it is?
We hope it’s not toxic.
We were also wondering if it could be something produced by
some farm supply company in the early 1900’s.
Thanks very much.
