Instructions for care and use of Fair Isle Hotties

The cover may be carefully hand washed using a mild detergent suitable for wool then gently squeezed to remove excess water and dried flat.  Do not wash inner cotton bag.

To heat, remove the outer Fair Isle cover and then simply place the inner wheat bag in a 650w microwave for two and a half minutes or in a 880w microwave two minutes. Recommended heating times should not be exceeded.

Periodically heat a cup of water to boiling point in the microwave thereby creating steam and then place the inner wheat bag in with the cup of water and heat for the required time. This enables the Hottie to rehydrate and extend its life.  

The product should only be reheated once it has completely cooled down.  This is to prevent pyrophoric action (undue temperature increase).

As this is a natural product it may feel damp when heated for the first two or three times.  This dampness will subside and the wheat bag may be used for many years.  

After use, your wheat bag should be left to cool in a safe place on a non-combustible surface and not stored until completely cold.

The wheat bag can also be heated in a warm oven (100/150 degrees, gas mark 1 or 2) for up to 10 minutes depending on how warm you want it to be.  Remove outer Fair Isle cover, then just sprinkle a few drops of water on the inner bag and wrap in foil but not tight before popping the inner bag into the oven.

Alternatively, cool inner bag only in the refrigerator or freezer for approximately an hour in a plastic bag.  It may then be used as a cold compress for relief from sports injuries, bumps, swellings etc.

May be used externally, hot or cold, on other areas of the body to assist with pain relief.


If you have any doubts about using this product, please consult your doctor.  Do not leave unattended with children under 36 months or anyone unable to feel the heat or move the bag for themselves.
