Loose-fill or blown-in insulation is a commonly used insulation type. It's directly formed as loose or broken into smaller shreds and chunks. That gives it a fluffy texture. Blown-in is useful, as you can use it in walls, ceilings, crawl spaces, and attics without disturbing the structures. Probably its biggest benefit is allowing the insulation of those unreachable spots.
Loose-fill insulation is typically composed of fiberglass, cellulose, or mineral wool. A special applicator and bit more skill is required to install blown-in.
Standard blown-in fiberglass provides an R-value of 3.2 per inch, A more expensive, chemical-free fiberglass loose-fill provides 4.2 per inch protection.
