Therapy Sacks (aka Wheat Sacks)

I have made these in mass production this year.  I've used these for as long as I can remember.  My hubby loves them, so I figured, they would make great Christmas gifts for the men in my life.  My kids also love them, because it's a great way to keep toes warm at night.

For those of you have never seen them, they are wheat sacks.  You throw them in the microwave for a few minutes, it heats the wheat up and you have a hot pad.  If you throw it in the freezer for awhile, you have a cold compress. 

They are pretty easy to make.  I could go into detail, but you can follow this tutorial and she can guide you.  You don't necessarily need to use flannel, but it is much softer on those sore spots.

Where abouts do you buy the wheat from?
