Straw/Coconut Fiber Blanket
Erosion Control Specification
Need a straw/coco blanket for an erosion control specification, residential area or job site? These double net blankets are the perfect choice! Made from an all natural blend of straw and coconut coir fibers, these blankets provide strength and stabilization for use on slopes up to 2:1 and moderate flow areas.
Each of these blankets is made from a mixture that contains 70% wheat straw and 30% coconut coir fiber. This combination of materials is placed evenly between photodegradable jute netting. This provides a reliable, high strength product that helps stabilize slopes and facilitate vegetation.

Straw Blanket Specifications
When compared to other biodegradable straw blankets, these straw/coco blends are designed specifically for applications involving increased flows or steeper slopes. While the the standard straw blanket is equipped for temporary erosion control (up to 1 year), the straw and coconut fiber blanket blends offers increased support for steeper slopes and longer erosion control needs.
Additional Coir Erosion Options
When compared to the straw fibers, the coconut coir material is built for increased strength and longevity of use. While the straw blankets are generally designed to last up to 1 year, the coir fibers can offer erosion control for anywhere from 4 to 6 years. For this reason, coir is often blended into straw blankets for increased support and erosion control. For stronger control options, please check out our Coir Erosion Control Mats.
