There's nothing new about processing wool into fluffy quilt filling. A lady I knew as a child raised several "bum" (orphan or rejected) lambs each year, sent their wool off to be washed, carded and fluffed into quilt filling, and made her own quilts with it. I know they were warm, but they weren't as light as high quality down. I strongly suspect that wool batting will neither compress as well nor recover from compression as well as 800+ fill down.
