Why is cork a good thermal insulator?

It is the air which fills the cells in the cork that makes it an excellent thermal insulator. The same protective principle can also be found in other natural products, such as wool and feathers, and in industry, such as double glazed windows, for example. However, none of these materials have such a high level of insu…
