This wheat bag heat pack is simple yet effective. It works on the premise that by filling the bag with more wheat, this will allow the heat to be maintained for longer. For anyone suffering from common muscular aches, menstrual pain, athritis and many other ailments that can be helped with the aid of heat, or anyone who just wants to keep warm on a chilly night, then the Wheat Bags Super Large can be an excellent companion.

This is one of our latest designs that has been carefully manufactured with the time and care that is the standard of all WheatyBags products. If you are looking for something a little bit bigger and of premium quality then this is a cost effective and reliable product, can be used hot or cold and stands the test of multiple uses.

Another luxury of the WheatyBags Super Large is the various colour and fabric choices that are available and the option to personalise your product making it unique and different. We also give the option of adding lavender to the WheatyBags to enhance relaxation. Each item is British made and filled with CE approved cleaned wheat. Simply warm in the microwave and settle down for the evening with the WheatyBags original Super Large.

Heat loss During Testing

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

  • The Original Super Large hot pack reached a maximum 64 degrees which is a lovely comfortable warmth.
  • That it retained a useful heat for well over 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 22% of its peak temperature heat which is one of our best heat retaining products.

The approximate weight of the heat pack is 1100gms.

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.

    Extra large wheat bag. Bag arrived within a couple of days. Bigger than usual so covers larger area of my back so more muscles are soothed. Very pleased with it. I like the fleece cover too.

    My new WheatyBags bag I am thrilled with my new WheatBag in brightly checked velour. It is very well made and retains its heat for quite some time. The added bonus is that it can also be frozen if you need a cold compress.

    bliss! Bought 2 xlarge bags for presents, and already they are much in use and appreciated. The stitched compartments keep the filling well distributed, so these are much better the cheaper shop bought items.

    So relaxing For a long time I have been looking for a replacement wheat bag for my old favourite. Most are quite on the small side but this one was very large and fitted snuggly round my shoulders. Having lavender added to it enhanced its relaxing properties. The other thing I liked about it was it was in three sections which meant it would retain its heat evenly. I would highly recommend this product for its quality and the speed of service.

    Perfect gift Very pleased with the wheat bag. Just the right size to go over the shoulder or around the neck. Especially good with the removable cover. I received extra "brownie points" as it was a present for my better half and she loves it..

    Ideal for soothing aches and pains I bought 2 packs - one for myself and one for my husband. We love the cosy fleece covers and that it only takes a couple of minutes to warm the packs up. Everybody should own one of these!!

    Ahhh that's better I suffer from arthritis of the neck and to make matters worse I recently had an accident that caused a whiplash injury. I bought the cushions to see if it helped .... and they did; absolute bliss. I drive a lot so I pop one in microwave before leaving and "wear" it when I leave.
