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.

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.

    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.

    For my daughter while on her laptop I got this for my daughter who's revising for her A levels. Working on her laptop for hours makes her neck ache. The wheat bag really helps as she can drape it around her neck and keep working.

    Soft & cosy Bought this before and absolutely love it. The colour is gorgeous and it is so easy to warm up in the microwave. Stays warm for a good long time tucked into the bottom of the bed, under the duvet. Great service, arrived promptly and well packaged.

    AMAZING I was having a problem finding anywhere that sells Wheat Bags until I stumbled across this site. I have severe Fibromyalgia and although Hot Water Bottles help at times I really need an Ice Pack for my upper body. I chose the Super Large Wheat Bag with added Lavender. I keep it in the Freezer. My pain is worse in my neck and shoulders and creates terrible headaches. This bag not only covers the back of my neck but also covers the top of my shoulders and is amazing. I am often woken through the night with the pain and use the Wheat Bag from the Freezer to stop that pain from getting any worse. I would recommend anybody with Fibromyalgia to give the Wheat Bags a try.

    My wonderful large heat pack I recently bought an original Super Large Heat Pack,as I already had a couple of small lavender filled wheat bags from a different source, and although they are good, the wheat runs from one end to the other, and I wanted a flat one with divisions in order that the heated wheat stays in the same place. Well, this one does just that and I bought it to place on my lower back in bed, to relieve aches and pains after gardening, etc!! I can highly recommend this product, it is so comforting and retains its heat extremely well.

    My elderly mum is delighted!! My elderly mother suffers from osteoporosis and is always complaining that her back really hurts, especially when she is trying to sleep at night. I decided that maybe some heat on her back would help her to relax and get some sleep so bought two WheatyBags - one for my mum and one for me. She absolutely LOVES her WheatyBag and is delighted at the very generous size and how long the bag retains heat for. In fact she says that she is able to drop off to sleep quite quickly now. Would recommend WheatyBags to everyone.

    My mum won't be without her wheaty bag now Bought this bag for my mum. She has been using it straight away and she is never without it. My mum suffers from arthritis and whenever she is in pain she uses it and the pain goes within minutes. She won't stop going on about how well it works! Delivery was fast and reliable. Would definitely buy another
