BS8433 : 2004

Natural Filling


The Value Range Upper Back Shoulder Neck Wheat Bag Heat Pack is a microwave wheat bag manufactured in the UK and has been expertly designed to target the upper back area of the body.

  • Microwave heat pack containing wheat.
  • Cleaned, CE-approved wheat filling that is locally sourced.
  • Wheat bag for coverage across the neck and upper back.
  • Fully compliant with British Safety Standards (BS8433).
  • Trusted WheatyBags® UK Made brand.

The Value Fabric Upper Back Shoulder Neck Wheat Bag Heat Pack from WheatyBags® is a natural extension of our Neck and Shoulder Wheat Bag, featuring an extra panel which has been designed to target the upper back area of the body. As the wheat is evenly distributed, this lovely microwave heat pack will sit naturally atop your shoulders, providing that much-needed relaxation and relief. This wheat pack is manufactured right here in the UK to the highest possible standards. Stitch lines partition this wheat bag into four separate compartments, preventing the wheat from all gathering at one end.

NB Fabric and Colour will vary depending on stock availability at the time. Our Value Range heat packs from WheatyBags® are made to order from fabric and colours available at the time. We cannot guarantee the colour nor fabric as we use up the end of line fabric rolls to make these heat packs. If you would like a specific fabric and colour, please order from our standard ranges where you have a full choice available.

Back discomfort relief - Bought one for my Dad and one for my father in law - both pleased and getting relief from the bags. (K, 12/05/21)
Very Good - but - The shape of these is excellent in that it goes down the shoulders and back. However, it could be even better if there was a 'collar' around the neck so that it would sit better up the neck towards the base of the skull, as that is where a lot of tension build up. On the whole, very pleased with product and service (Lovebird, 25/04/21)
Wheat bag back pain heat pack - Great for the back and shoulders would recommend this to anyone (Roy/hitch , 07/04/21)
Great product - I bought this product for my elderly father who suffers with a frozen shoulder and quite severe pain most days. Soon as I put it on my father the warmth and slight weight which helped by slightly compressing the shoulder felt great for him. He’s very happy with the product and I can highly recommend it on his behalf. (G west, 29/03/21)
Weaty bag back and shoulders - The first bag had a mysterious hole appear over night spilling weat on the setee Sent an email to customer service no problem sent another out straight away. After using it the same night worked ok but what a shock the next morning to find not 1 but 2 holes in it more cleaning up it seamed there was a reaction between the weat and the cotton?.I will say one thing Nathan Barry the customer service adviser he was excellent. Just waiting for the refund to get back in my Bank. (Allan, 04/03/21)
Stylish - Looks very good quality can't say anymore as Xmas present (Dean, 23/12/20)
Stylish - Looks very good quality can't say anymore as Xmas present (Deano, 23/12/20)
So comfortable - I bought the wheat bag for my husband, he suffers from back and shoulder pain and visits the chiropractor regularly. He is always advised to put heat on his shoulder after treatment but regular shaped wheat bags or hot water bottles are so uncomfortable. This applies heat to his back and shoulders comfortably and is so soothing and beneficial. (Mel61 , 18/12/20)
Excellent product - Has made a difference to shoulder & neck pain almost as soon as I started using it. (Sue, 10/12/20)
A very good way to add heat to your back. - An excellent solution. Very easy to use. Worth the money. (Sam, 12/10/20)
Wheatbag - Very good (Gina, 16/09/20)
Excellent - Excellent value and quality. My hubbie loves it and does the trick (Bevy, 20/08/20)
my wife loves the wheatybag - perfect size and would buy again from wheatybags.co.uk (John Adrian McHugh)
Pain relief cushion - I was very impressed with the quality and how effective it was (Tracy)
Lovely and comforting. - Lovely and comforting.  (Polly)
Very popular with our patients - We use these in our rehab gym with our patients and they work very well. The multi-buy deal also means that we are able to supply them to our patients for them to use at home at a very reasonable price. (anonymous)
Wheat bag - Great product, quickly received (Chloe)
Excellent replacement product... - I had a wonderful wheat bag, similar to this bought abroad a number of years ago. Unfortunately it got damaged, didn't think I'd find another easily that would work as well so opted for this value one to try. For the price it is amazing value & works well, I think next time I would opt for the one with a cover (or make one) to protect it. But a great purchase if you are not sure if the shape/style will meet your needs. (Ruth)
Wonderful - Bought this for my husband, who says it's very comfortable and holds the heat so much better than his previous one. Excellent service, ordered on Thursday afternoon and delivered on Saturday morning (1st class post). (Pat in North Wales)
Great product - Bought this product to help with muscular neck pain caused through excessive exercise. Physiotherapist had advised heat may help and this product has proved to be very beneficial. Would highly recommend. Customer service also excellent. (Liz)
perfect - Perfect heat pack for my back. Sits on the top of the back nicely (charley)
Heat pack - Excellent service and a great product 5 out of 5 (Gary)
Great present for elderly relative - Secure and easy to use gives relief to aching shoulders and neck. Used daily an excellent product for anyone who suffers neck or shoulder pain. (Hel76)
Customer Service Review of Value Range Upper Back Shoulder Neck Wheat Bag Heat Pack - If you're looking for a microwave heat pack that rests on your shoulders but also targets the upper back, this one is for you. We've cleverly partitioned this wheat bag into four separate compartments, which allows the wheat to be evenly distributed. If you've ever had a wheat bag go cold quickly, it's because the wheat ends up gathering all at one end. You won't have this problem with the Upper Back Shoulder Neck. This lovely wheat bag can help to provide relief for things such as frozen shoulder, due to the coverage maximising design and generous amount of locally sourced wheat we fill it with. Overall, a fantastic product at an unbeatable price. (Lance Plachciak)

How do the Value Range heat packs differ to the main WheatyBags®?
Our Value Range heat packs are made very simply from fabrics we have available and made in bulk ready to sell at the lowest possible cost to you. The value fabric tends to be slightly thinner than the premium outer (normal) fabric we use though remains strong, natural and suitable for purpose and keeps costs as low as possible for you. The fabrics we use tend to be left-over fabrics from larger trade jobs so the fabric usually will be either cotton or polycotton or polyester, and the colours vary from our core and non core fabrics so there is no guidance we can give you on which fabric and colour you will get for your order. All we can say is they will be great value and a great product as you will trust from the WheatyBags® brand.

Are the Value Range heat packs safe to use?
Yes. All have been tested in the same way as our premium range and you can rest assured of the same safety standards used on all the products in the core WheatyBags® brand range.

Do these products come with heating instructions?
Yes. All instructions are on a sewn-on label and a card reminder label attached to the product in accordance with the safety standard guidance we follow.

Can the Value Range be personalised?

Are there other options I can choose from in the Value Range products?
All options you have are shown within the product. No other options are available other than those shown online when ordering to keep matters as simple and low cost as possible.

Is the Lavender Organic?
Yes. We purchase Organic Lavender from our Grain & Seed Merchant in the UK and they have sourced genuine lavender buds for our heat packs.  This is not a scent, we add the flower buds from Organic Lavender for the most exquisite fragrance.

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

Please read the “Instructions” shown on our website for each Product as the heating and cooling instructions vary by product. All our heat packs have been safety tested and come with instructions labels sewn into the product itself and on a card attachment to be retained for safe reference.

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

Yes. 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 especially if you have selected the (polyester) fleece fabric covers. Cotton is much more absorbent and breathable and will lessen the initial damp effect. 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 it from the microwave and put it in a safe place while it cools (perhaps outside). 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 and it must be disposed of being careful that the product is not actually 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 most of our products, you will see the option to purchase a removable 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 safety tested 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 “loosley 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.

Are these products a medical product?

No. Clear Prospects Ltd manufactures WheatyBags® microwave heat packs which have been tested to safety standard BS8433:2004.  We are not Doctors and our products are not medical products (our heat packs are simple microwave heat packs that provide warmth and comfort). If you are unsure about their use, we recommend you consult your doctor before using heat packs in general.
