Fibre

Hi Alanwes, there are many many fibre insulation products. SheepsWool, Hemp, Recycled Cotton, Rockwool, Fibreglass and so on. Given a similar density they will all do they job.
Take a look at http://www.bobgolds.com/AbsorptionCoefficients.htm

Note that 703 has a density of 3 pounds per cubic foot.
To go metric multiply by 16 i.e. 48KG per cubic metre.

In general-
Rockwool is often used at higher densities. 100KG is common for a rigid board.
Fibreglass is more rigid, Rockwool is floppy.
