Fabrics and Fill


The Fabric Options

GingerWraps does not limit the design imagination to a few selected bolts of fabric.  Things are done a little differently here.  There are no 'stock fabrics' to show you that are sitting on the back shelf waiting patiently for someone to buy them because, well..........that is just not what GingerWraps does.  

At GingerWraps, the sky is (almost) the limit when considering fabric.  
Here is how it works....

  1. You will be sent a Colour Pantone Chart; you choose the colour(s) which interests you.
  2. You can choose a style of pattern as well.  (flowers, animal prints, solids, elegant, etc.)
  3. Within 2 to 3 days, you will receive an email with a wide selection of pictures of fabrics which have been chosen specially for you and your needs/desires. 
  4. You may choose the fabric in one of those pictures or request more pictures.
  5. A matching or contrasting flannel for the back of the item will be chosen at your discretion.


That's all there is to it.  Beautiful and uniquely designed for you.


The Fill Options

There are two standard fill options that are used.  No additional quilt batting or cotton is used as that tends to add unnecessary additional heat.  

Poly Pellets:   Plastic poly pellets (polypropylene pellets) are usually used as 'the weight' in most weighted therapy items.  They are small oval pellets which give the weighted item its smooth and consistent look.  They are noted to be safe and do not leach chemicals as some other plastic pellets can.  These are the same pellets used in many stuffed animals and toys.

River Rock:  River rock is a completely natural substance and can be easily be substituted in place of the Poly Pellets.  Although the rocks are very small, they do not have the same flowing smoothness of the pellets and you will find the weighted item might look a tiny bit lumpier in places.  It is important to note, however; that this does not detract from the overall benefits.  River Rock is also a less expensive option for the budget conscious.
