We offer a stunning range of limited edition heat packs filled with approved cleaned wheat.

The Original Heat Pack is one of our most popular products and with these super-soft fabrics available for a short time only, you can select from the many fabrics on show.

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.

    Warmth in a spotty bag. I am paralysed with M.S.and live alone. I have a microwave by my bed, and can pop a wheat bag in it to warm up or soothe at any time of the night. During the day I can pad my wheelchair with them before going out in the English winter. In fact, I really recommend them!

    Amazing wheat bags I purchased a wheat bag as I have ongoing issues with my neck and shoulders. So I ordered one for me and I purchased one for a friend who had similar issues. I have to say for the price the items are of excellent quality. I would certainly recommend these items.

    HEAT, WHEN U NEED IT, WHERE U NEED IT Bought 2 yellow wheaty bags, one each for hubby and I. Really super product esp during winter months when we need to keep our feet warm. As we live on a narrow boat, u can only imagine how cold the end of the bed can get with the iced River not 10cm from our feet! Placing the order and delivery thereof was quick and easy.

    Lovely soft hottie

    Really good hottie, well filled, soft brightly coloured cover, the lavendar was a bit strong for me so when I order again it will be without the perfume. I suffer with back pain and this is a lifesaver!

    New Cushion very well received

    My recent purchase of the narrow lap-type wheatybag was very welcome by the person it was given to. It was a masculine style and colour and in regular use by a gentleman who suffers from poor circulation. Very pleased indeed with the product.

    We love this wheatbag

    First time shopping with this company and am extremely pleased. This wheatybag is of good quality with a great choice of covers. The lavender scent (optional) is wonderfully comforting and good for menstrual cramps. The cover pattern is cute and super soft, would suit young and old. Will be buying more from this company.

    Nice and warm

    The microwave pack is well made and worth the money. Nice to have on your lap in the chilly evenings when you don't want to put the central heating on.

    Directors Review of the Limited Edition Original Heat Pack

    By far our most popular heat pack is the Original Microwave Heat Pack and we have over the years sourced so many fabrics and styles.  Our Limited Edition range is a one off opportunity to buy an Original pack but in lovely and never to be repeated fleece fabrics as shown here.

    Once we sell out of each style, we will remove them from sale and there is only limited number available so, if you like the look of these unique fabric prints, buy one now while you can.
