When we start the second coat of clay render, the mix is to include chopped straw to help bind the straw together and give it tensile strength.  As part of our research into the best way to chop straw we tried a garden shredder.  This did make a bit of difference but the straw wasn't as fine as we had hoped.  Sending the straw through multiple times did not make a lot of difference.
