Do u know how to make DIY hemp or flax insulation?

According to the Crops in construction handbook By Andrew Cripps, R. Handyside, L. Dewar, Hemp and flax can be used as an insulation...

So I googled hemp insulation and flax insulation..
I am looking for a bale type insulation because it's easy to make
and found the following flax bale looks like that flax stalks was dried and bundled. right?

Pieter Holmstraat 18, IJburg

but could not find hemp bale insulation...

I'd like to know how to make hemp or other crop bale based insulation which yields 5k~6k Rayls/m flow resistivity...

the following link of hemp insulation yield 6k Rayls/m flow resistivity... but i can't buy this hemp insulation in my country..


and which part is used for making hemp bale insulation.. hemp bast or hemp hurd?

p.s I assume that the OP of the following link also used the Thermo-hanf hemp insulation...
