    What insulation would people suggest for internal stud walls of timber frame house? It's just for soundproofing. Studwork is 89mm deep. I would like to stick with natural insulation.
    Noise isn't a big issue for us, and we are detached so no party walls to worry about.
    Also, same question for between ceiling and attic floor - attic is habitable with warm roof.
    Thanks in advance.
    Try the acoustic grade of recycled cotton.

    Thanks. Also, I forgot to ask, the depth between attic floor and ceiling below is 220mm. Would I need to fill all of this, bearing in mind it's only for soundproofing not warmth? Or would 100mm be ok?

    debbiel, No, you want a clear air space above the insulation.
    Try to 'snug'the batts into place, with no gaps, but not too tight.
    Good luck...:smile:
