We have sewn in a centre seam that will hold the wheat in place on this Large size WheatyBag, but also this acts as a crease if you wanted to fold the pack in half.  Some people wanted heat for the hands while resting on an arm of the sofa and this new crease would allow you to sandwich the hands for example between the lovely warmth of the pack to relieve arthiritis pain in the hands.

The large size would sit on top of the shoulders though would be better placed to rest over the legs or arms, or perhaps as an alternative to the hot water bottle to relieve period pain related cramps or other such painful experiences.

Heat loss During Testing

When heated to the recommended guidelines (at 1000w), we tested the product fully and found the following:

  • The Large hot pack reached a maximum 48 degrees which is a mild and comfortable warmth.
  • That it retained a useful heat for an hour depending on the conditions of use.
  • After 1 heating cycle and 1 hour of continual use, this microwave heat pack had only lost 21% of its peak temperature heat which we consider a good length of time.

The approximate weight of the heat pack is 920gms.

Removable Covers   If you purchase this Product with the option for "Removable Cover" for cleaning, the outer removable cover will be supplied in the fabric and colour of your choice.  The inner pack will be manufactured from a fabric and colour of our choice depending on supplies available at the time of manufacture (usually our value natural cotton or non-woven fabric depending on the product).  

How long should the heat pack be put into the microwave or chill in the freezer?

Please click on the “Instructions” tab online or the labelling on the product on arrival.

Is it normal that my heat pack feels damp when microwaving?

When you first microwave the heat pack the contents inside will feel damp. This will subside after a few heating cycles and is quite normal. Do not overheat the wheat bag to attempt to dry it out.

What happens if I microwave the heat pack for too long or it burns?

Please be very careful not to overheat the heat pack. If overheated they can catch fire which is very dangerous. Overheating can be caused by food or contamination from your microwave so it is important that the microwave is clean before you heat the product.

If overheating occurs, remove from the microwave and put in a safe place while it cools. Do not use again until the product has returned to room temperature. If it is giving off a burnt smell, or has small burn marks on the fabric, you have overheated the product. Please throw away the heat pack being careful that the product is not burning. A replacement product would then have to be purchased.

Can I wash my Heat Pack?

Do not place the full heat pack in the washing machine or get the contents wet as it can damage the product. It is advised that you surface clean with a damp cloth or sponge to clean the product. If the product becomes wet then it needs to be dried out before the wheat inside germinates and we suggest placing the product in a warm room to dry at room temperature. If the wheat inside does germinate then we do not recommend that you use the wheat bag.

Can I purchase removable covers that can be washed for my heat pack?

On some of our products you will see the option to purchase a removeable cover for cleaning. If this is shown as an option then this cover is removable from the main heat pack and can be washed with like colours in the washing machine or by hand at a low temperature of 30 to 40 degrees.

Is it possible to warm the heat pack other than the microwave?

No. Our heat packs are designed to be exclusively heated in a microwave.

How do I fit a larger heat pack in my small microwave?

Some of our products are larger when flat than the size of smaller microwaves. It is ok to “scrunch” up the heat pack lightly to fit into the microwave but is important not to fold the pack in half tightly as this can create hot spots when heating.

Are these heat packs suitable for young children?

No. We do not recommend that heat packs are given the very young children under the age of 3 years old. Adult supervision should always be provided and should only be heated by an adult with great care.

    Who knew you could personalise a wheat bag- you can! came up with hilarious idea of a personalised wheat bag for my mum, didn't think it was possible until i found WheatyBags. So impressed with their range of different bags and customisable options from fabrics, prints and removable covers. Got mine personalised and not too expensive. Would have liked a colour palette to show the colour the text would be in as mine wasn't the colour i had thought it would be and also how the text/ personalisation would be on the bag (stitched/ printed etc) but none the less it looks great and the quality is very good. Mum is thrilled and I'm pleased too. Delivery was much quicker than expected as well.

    A Good Night's Sleep I gave my husband a large Wheatybag for Christmas and it is one of the most successful presents ever. He heats it up, brings it to warm the bed and the smell of the lavender just sends us both into a peaceful sleep. I am really pleased at how easy it is to use and how successful it is. Your product was recommended to me and I would definitely recommend it to friends & family.

    So comforting with a Lovely Lavender scent. Great size too. I ordered a wheatybag after I was discharged from Hospital recently. It has been a godsend. Ive used it on my back, neck, hip. It takes 2 mins to heat in the microwave. I take it up to bed with me. Much easier than a hot water bottle.

    The wheaty bag iis just perfect My wheaty bag is just perfect in that size for my feet as my electric blanket is not enough on its own to warm my feet. I love the lavender scent as well and its fuschia pink cover. Well done.
