Cedar Excelsior:
    Excelsior or, wood wool is a product that had been used as a packaging product for the shipping of delicate items. With the advent of foam packing peanuts and asphalt roofing products, excelsior went through a decline in its use for this application. Excelsior was used for article stuffing; furniture, pet bedding and taxidermy products all used excelsior to a greater degree than is used today. I feel there are still valid reasons for choosing excelsior for your projects or shipping, as no matter the choice of available products, each has its detractor points and their benefits. 

    Some of the uses for excelsior, along with those above are;

  • craft stuffings for gift baskets and ornaments
  • doll and teddy bear stuffing
  • pet bed stuffing
  • medium for erosion control products (blankets and wattle)
  • archery target medium
  • sound proofing panel medium (acoustic panels)
  • swamp cooler element medium
  • fire starter medium
  • void fill for packaging
  • garland
