The stores in my area did not have straw at all, or they had really big bales which I don't want.
This straw product from Amazon worked very well for me for growing lawn grass. I was dubious at first b/c when I opened the package, the pieces of straw were small and fine. But when I used it I found it worked extremely well.
Here's why I like straw to grow lawn grass seed: Straw covers the seed, allows sprinkled water applied from above to go through the straw to the seed/ground, and straw helps keep the ground/seed moist. I think it keeps birds from eating the grass seed. (I also put some pinwheels in the ground to keep birds away from the seeds.) Straw allows the grass to grow right through the straw. You can rake the straw up when the grass is sufficiently high, 3 or more inches, when it's time to begin mowing the grass. You can use the straw again. This straw did all these things well.
There are very few weeds in my new grass, so I conclude that there were no seeds in this straw.
If you're trying to grow grass from seed, cooler weather is best - spring or fall. WATER your grass a lot. I use a sprinkler and let it go for 15-20 minutes 2x per day until the grass gets 3 inches high or more and is ready to mow. You can still water it occasionally after that.
A note on Burlap: Burlap is good for uses other than growing grass seed, like shading new plants or protecting plants over the winter. I feel it's not good to cover grass seed you're trying to sprout. As soon as the seeds sprout, the wet burlap squishes the new seed sprouts and you should take the burlap up, but how to keep in moisture then and how to protect the seeds that haven't sprouted? The seeds sprout over a range of several days.
If you want straw for growing lawn grass from seed, I think you'll like this product. If you're growing a really big area you might want to consider a bale of straw. Good luck & enjoy!
P.S. I have no relationship with the company that makes this straw. Also, I purchased this straw from Amazon.
I've bought FloraCraft 18" straw bales and at least they were usable straw. Too bad I was too desperate and unable to buy at my local garden center because the prices are atrocious.
