Flax has gained organic status and is a bi-product of the superior human bedding product, linen and is extracted from the ligneous part of the flax stalk. The linen flax produces a soft, thermal, natural bedding with non-allergic fibres.

It works by absorbing liquids at the base of the bed creating a healthy stable through its immense absorbency and absorbs more liquid per cubic meter than any other bedding. The bedding allows air to act as a natural cushion separating the wet from the dry ensuing the top layer of the bed remains comfortable and dry. It can be used o with or without matting providing an excellent cushion for your horse to stand and lay on.

Flax bedding has shown to be significantly more absorbent than wood shavings, pine flakes hemp shavings and straw. Its unmatched absorption makes it an economical premium bedding product.
