  • Item #: STRAW - FULL

FULL BALE STRAW.  Our full bale of compressed straw measures approx 19" x 16" x 40"tall.  That is its size when they harvest it/bind it right from the field.  The straw is compressed together and packed tight.  This means the bale will expand out to even more coverage.  Ark Workshop STRAW is compacted, compressed dry straw that is harvested from Indiana fields.  INFO ABOUT OUR STRAW.  There is little-no dust and it is excellent quality.  It covers a wide area and STRAW is a very warm bedding because it traps air.  Ark Workshop STRAW arrives enclosed in a plastic bag and in its own box.  The box can be kept upright and stored in dry area.  All you need to do is open up the box end, remove straw, as needed, and re-close flaps.  The box serves as a nice container and helps decrease any straw messes.  Cats nuzzle down into straw and surround themselves with it.  They seem to understand its warmth properties.   Straw conforms and molds nicely as it presses up against the inner walls, etc....and the cat will create a cup-like shape in the middle much like baby birds in a bird's nest.  Some customers put straw around the outside of the house and up against the sides to help block winds, etc....which is a good idea.  The idea there is to create a nest effect outside and then nuzzle the house down into that.  If needed, you can add straw to your shelter, a little at a time, and add more as your cat becomes used to it.  Having STRAW BEDDING arrive at your doorstep is much more convenient than having to venture out and transport it in your vehicle.  It also eliminates car messes that generally occur when transporting.  Re-order as needed.  Three quantities availbable:  2 Leaves, 1/2 Bale (approx 6 leaves), FULL Bale (approx 12 leaves).  If you have already ordered your house and also ordered straw as an option, the introductory amount you received was 1 Leaf.  Also note:  Shipping rates are determined by box SIZE and not box weight.  Although straw is a light item, the boxing requirements will determine the ship rate.  Thanks.

NOTE ABOUT SHIPPING CHARGES FOR STRAW:   Although straw is a light item, box size is what will determine the ship rate.  Ship charges for straw can sometimes seem high because often the ship rate is close to product price and sometimes even more.  Many consumers perceive straw as something lightweight and airy.  Therefore, shipping should be low.  Right?  I remember seeing a seller selling tumbleweeds as a house decoration and the ship rates were high because of the box size they had to use.  That is the same situation with straw.  Ship rate is based on box size and it will require every bit of the shipping charged to get straw quantities to you.  One way to look at it is by the number of "refillings" that you will receive.  Our straw comes compressed and compacted and not much is required for 1 refill.  Therefore, when you consider the overall price in comparison to the number of refilling’s that you will receive; straw is a very economical way to go.
