Needle-punched hemp mats to help replicate behaviour in the wild

Naturally, hemp fibres are completely non-toxic so animals can chew on them and shred them to their hearts’ content. The shredding is an important part of the nesting. For this reason, HempFlax provides the soft hemp fibres needle-punched into a mattress form. This enables animals to rip and chew them up in the same way that they would in the wild.

These small mats are created using the same mechanical non-woven techniques that HempFlax employ to make the much larger ones which are used in industrial applications such as, for example, panels in cars. Whether large or small, the mats are made without any additives – they are pure hemp! And naturally, there’s no psychoactive effects, so there’s no chance of pets getting high.

Where can you obtain Mini-Hemp Soft Mattresses?

In the Netherlands, Welkoop have over 150 shops that will be stocking the Mini-Hemp Mattresses featuring Patty and Tosti from the beginning of June 2018. It will also be available from their online shop from the same time. Elsewhere in Europe, there is a large network of pet shops where HempFlax pet products are stocked; if your local shop doesn’t have them, ask them to contact HempFlax to become a reseller and make more of our furry friends warm and happy!
