IEC Softlay Bedding is made from 100 per cent pure miscanthus, a bamboo like crop which yields over 16 tonnes per hectare. IEC harvests up to 80 per cent of the UK’s miscanthus, which is processed as an energy crop for biomass boilers as well as for the creation of Softlay Bedding, and ethos Smart Bedding for Equine and Pets, find out more about ethos Smart Bedding here.
As a natural, biodegradable plant, miscanthus is ideal for creating bedding material. Unlike many wood-based bedding products, it dries naturally in the field, which guarantees a 10-15 per cent moisture content.
Every batch of Softlay Bedding can be traced back to the exact field from which it was produced, including harvesting dates, moisture content and processing methods.
