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 NeckWraps are usually made of ultra soft chenille fabric (aka Minky). Chenille comes in a wide variety of colours and styles (see the Mermaid Tails - Fabrics Available tab for some style and colour options).  You may choose other fabric if you wish but the small size and shape of the NeckWraps, most people prefer one colour with soft material.

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.
