      Ive used rock wool blanket on a few oven builds. For the same thickness the rock wool was slightly cheaper and only marginally inferior as an insulator. It is however even more water absorbent than the ceramic fibre blanket and its worst quality I found was its consistency. It is much softer than ceramic fibre making it more difficult to cut and harder to work over with the vermicrete layer. I much prefer and use exclusively now, the ceramic fibre blanket. I think its well worth the additional cost. If you go the ceramic fibre blanket route, just check to make sure you get the bio absorbent carcinogen exonerated blanket. Think twice about using foil in any layer over the dome because as well as acting as a slip layer it will also act to trap moisture from escaping, making drying the oven that much more difficult.
