I want to insulate my walls from the attic but I don't know what kind of insulation will pour all the way to the bottom of studs. The blow in stuff I used in the attic will get stuck on the way down and will settle. What kind do I need and where can I find it? All the local places have is batt and cellulose blow-in. Thanks for any help in advance.

That's a tough one. You do NOT want to use that expanding foam type as it may expand & bulge the walls. Have seen professional blown-in insulation by opening holes in the walls but requires one low & one high between every stud cavity.

Use blown in cellouse insulation, you can rent the blower where ever you purchase the insulation. feed the hose all the way down the wall and pull it out slowly as you fill the wall.
Other wise as LDoyle said cut round holes in the walls about 1/2 way up the wall and at the top. Only other concern is vapor a barrier.
