Wasps Nests in Sheep’s Wool Insulation

Do wasps like to build their nests in sheep’s wool insulation/is it safe for them?

There isn’t anything in Thermafleece wool that would either attract or repel wasps.  They make their nests from paper which they create by nibbling on wood.

Wasps build a new nest every year and use a nest only for one year.  They never return to an old nest.

There is nothing to be concerned about regarding the insulation attracting or harming wasps.
