What's so different about
Count the numerous ways ...
Interlocking Channel Stitching Provides Superior Construction
Most commercial heat packs and relaxation pillows on the market today
have certain drawbacks that result in inferior performance. The
most common drawback is the way they are sewn --straight wide
sectioned panels that typically allow the filler to shift around
and migrate to the edges clumping in some areas while others
are left totally empty.
At WarmGoods® we spent a lot of time thinking about how we could make a wrap that was both effective and practical. It soon became evident that instead of straight wide panels we could create channels, bring the stitching closer together, and go one step further to interlock them. This stitching pattern ensures the seeds in the whole wrap remain evenly distributed regardless of how it is used or handled.

The construction of each style of wrap is slightly different. Each
one is cut and marked individually. Then the channels are created
and filled with tubing that can reach all the nooks and crannies.
After the tubing is filled, the fill is evened out before sealing
and tagging. The fabulous benefit that came about from constructing
the wraps this way, was their amazing flexibility and bendability!
Hemp & Cotton Fleece Blends Offer a More Cushy Feel
The woven fleece fabric used for the wrap itself gives it a cushy
quality. Hemp provides thermal insulation and durability, while
cotton lends a supple soft feeling. This fabric is a certified
organic blend that is 45% hemp and 55% cotton purchased from Hemp
Traders --purveyors of the finest hemp products. For more info
Removable Protective Covers
While heating the wrap consistently keeps it in sterile condition,
it's simply not possible to clean the wrap itself through immersion.
Removable protective covers that can be laundered separately, enables
you to keep your wrap feeling and smelling fresh and clean. This
is especially helpful to massage therapists and bodyworkers who
can swap out covers for back-to-back clients and launder them at
a later time. We use top quality brushed cotton knits and cotton
flannel for their soft cozy feel and durability. They come in colors
that can work with most outfits and provide a smart look. As long
as you take good care of your WarmGoods® wrap, it will take good
care of you!
Wrap-Tie Covers provide a safe, comfortable, effective method for
securing the wraps in place. There where many choices available
for closures to secure the wraps to the body. Velcro, a popular
option among makers of similar products, breaks down over time
from the heat exposure and constant use. It can also scratch if
you happen to fall asleep on it or place it the wrong way. An extra
cover with extra tie handles made the most sense. Not only does
it provide another soft layer of cotton to help retain the heat,
but it facilitates the ability to wrap once or twice around an
area to secure the garment in place.
Flax Seed Filling
In some products the kernels used are so big and sharp that it is
very uncomfortable to rest on them with out feeling prickled. Definitely
not soothing. Flat flax seeds are key. Like pieces of clay that
merge flat against each other as the potter raises the clay to
form the smooth wall of a vessel, flax seeds followed the curves
of the channels, laying flat in much the same way. In addition,
the high oleic content of flax seed makes it a perfect choice for
providing deep moist heat. We always marvel how, after years of
use, the wraps still provide the same amount of moisture as they
did when they were new!
