Yes, if the batts are low density and the blown-in is not also;http://www.diychatroom.com/f98/how-b...ulation-90438/

It brought my heat bill down quite a bit. But I also sealed the attic before adding the blown in insulation. You might want to consider doing that before adding anything. It's very important. Lift every batt and look underneath.

Gary, excellent thread you started about fiberglass insulation. All of the links are very helpful!
