Yes, I had considered sheeps wool too, but wrong time of year again for finding any, but love the idea of testing out the mycelium in this application. I do like to tinker with stuff I did wonder if it might be too cold to grow in the winter, then it might get going itself in the spring?
Or I wonder if I was to wait until next year, whether I could still clad it for the winter, then I could take the top board off in spring and tip lots of loose substrate in the empty cavity and seal it back up again, whether that could work?

I just got caught up and watched the webinar. Thank you for that.
I live in the UK in an old static caravan (mobile home) that I'm renovating, but it has very little in the way of insulation, just an inch or so of polystyrene between the interior wall and external sheet metal skin. This will be our first winter, and I have a stack of larch boards ready to clad the whole structure with. I hate the idea of putting in 'standard' insulation from both an ecological point of view and for the cost. Could I fill the gap between the exterior metal wall of the caravan and the larch boards with this mycelium insulation? Could I fill it as I board with the loose substrate so it solidifies in place? Could this be done at this time of year with success? I'm in the North here, and it's wet most days and although still fairly warm, soon we'll be below freezing, so I don't have time to wait 6 weeks to grow panels.
Any ideas or suggestions that you may have?
