Shredded Paper & Wood Wool

Frequently Asked Questions

Find the answers to our most common shredded paper and wood wool queries.

When Do You Need Fill?

As a rule of thumb wicker hampers, gift trays, gift boxes and wooden crates will all need shredded paper or wood wool when packed as a hamper. It helps to keep the products in place, protects in transit, and looks great too.

What Fill Options Are There?

Choose between 100% natural and FSC approved wood wool or recyclable shredded paper. We also stock FSC approved tissue paper and recycled Flexi-Hex Bottle Sleeves. All these options are plastic-free, biodegradable and easily recycled.

What does FSC approved mean?

FSC stands for 'Forest Stewardship Council'. The wood and paper used to make products with an FSC label has been sourced from forests that are managed responsibly. These products are also renewable, reusable, and recyclable.

How Much Shred Will I Need?

We've made it super easy; simply add your chosen wicker hampers, gift trays or boxes to your online basket, and we'll do the math. Our recommendation is a guide as requirements will vary depending on contents and packing preferences.

How do you fill small gift boxes?

Tissue paper is an excellent alternative for packing hampers, especially for small gift boxes where space is a premium. First, lay a length of luxury ribbon along the bottom of the box, covering it with a few sheets of neatly folded tissue paper. Place your product inside the tissue paper and fold the paper round to cover. Lastly tie the ribbon in a bow and voila!

What's unique about wood wool?

Aside from being 100% natural and its aesthetic appeal, wood wool has long been known for its protective qualities. Originally designed to transport pottery, the lightweight shredded timber makes a great filler for fragile bottles, jars, ceramics, and more. There's a lot of volume and bounce in it, so a little goes a long way.
