What is more important on bare timber and many don't bother is to prevent "bleeding" knotting solution to seal should be used first, the only way around it is to use an Aluminoum oxide based primer costs a fortune so better using a knotting solution
Many of the cowboy decorators just apply more paint which is rubbish, it will still invariably bleed unles treated first

Why don't we go back to using proper sheep wool?
Got lots of the little b*gg*rs roaming around and Britain's ancient wealth was built on wool at one time.
Fleeces are worth twopence ha'penny these days.
There are outfits doing sheep wool insulation etc. out there. I guess maybe it's the logistics and cost of production that might not make it particularly feasible when matched against the new man made materials.
If it's the only scale of production that limits more widespread use, maybe we should just try a bit harder to come up with more sustainable alternatives like this when they're already right under our noses? Why do we always have to go for 'man made' when the natural world has some pretty good materials already?
