Manufactured here in the UK, our Upper Back Shoulder Neck microwave heat pack has been designed to offer an exceptional amount of coverage across the shoulder area. The back, shoulder and neck are all areas of the body that are susceptible to strain related injuries and we've designed this heat pack to effectively target those areas. The Upper Back Shoulder Neck  has been seamed into 8 compartments, so the wheat will never gather at one end. This keeps the heat evenly distributed when in use. 

WheatyBags are filled with is triple cleaned, locally sourced, CE-approved wheat. As we are a textile factory, we offer an assortment of stunning premium quality fabric and colour options for you to choose from. As wheat bags make for a wonderful and thoughtful gift idea, we also offer a myriad of personalisation options for you to choose from, allowing you to create something truly unique. If you want your wheat bag to smell gorgeous, then please consider our lavender option, which has been sourced from the Provence region of France.

The Upper Back Shoulder Neck microwave wheat pack is manufactured in our Lancashire factory to the same impeccable standards expected from the WheatyBags range. All of our products have been rigorously tested to ensure their compliance with British Safety Standards (BS8433). This wheat bag offers exceptional heat retention and is manufactured using only the finest, long-lasting materials. Full heating instructions are provided, so please follow them carefully. 

The approximate weight of the heat pack is 1250gms.

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.

    Great quality product Great product - much better than street bought alternatives. It's shape makes it ideal and it stays in place even when walking around the house rather than having to remove it every time you get up. Arrived in good time, great quality, stitching keeps wheat where it needs to be and removable cover is a bonus. Definitely recommend.

    Great product I am very pleased with my purchase, it provides warmth and comfort to my upper back/shoulders, easing sore muscles. It is easy to 'wear' too, while moving around - I no longer have to sit still with my back against a hot water bottle to get heat to my shoulders. Very glad I found this product.

    Finally a large wheat bag! I bought this for long standing neck and shoulder pain. It is large enough to cover my entire neck and shoulders which is great because my 'good' side can start overcompensating for the bad and get a bit achey too. Obviously a great quality item and well made. I'm very happy with my purchase.
