Insulating non- vented eves

I'm finishing a workshop in my garage, and I'm looking at insulating the finished ceiling. I have access above, the question is about blowing insulation down into non-vented eves. I know you need a baffle to keep air flow from your soffit vents, but what if this section is not vented? Do I need to worry about baffles?



Non vented soffit above rock wall.

That hole follows the roofline down about 4'. It would be difficult to get batt insulation down there.

My other option is to use standard kraft face batts. I would need to use 10' pipe to shove the insulation down that 4' hole to the eves. Then use the pipe to tamp it down into the ceiling cavity,, leaving a few inches air space between the insulation and roof deck... It would be difficult at best.

Is it ok if loose fill touches the roof deck?
