I know without testing it's almost impossible to know if something contains asbestos.

I've had two people view the image below:

One person says it's a 85% chance it's asbestos wool and the drywall (same manufacture) would also contain asbestos.

Another person said the chances of it being asbestos is slim to none.

Again without testing, is this bagged insulation asbestos?

Asbestos in Insulation is typically an ingredient in two types of Insulation. One is vermiculite, the other is mineral wool. I will post a picture of both. I do not see the pic you said you sent here in this question but if its one of these you will absolutely need to have it tested to know.

My name is Ed Lewis With Asbestos Solutions and I hope this reply helps your issue at hand.
