Item details

Raw unprocessed HEMP BARK.

Stripped directly from the hemp stalk, this bark has not been processed in any way, simply dried and bundled.

You receive a bundle of about 60 strips, about 7 feet in length and about 1/4 inch wide. This is a natural product, so the strips are not uniform.

Very similar in texture to raffia or corn husks, only stronger.

I use these to tie my Hemp Heat Pads for shipping and they hold up great!

You can use this natural fiber for weaving, crafts, bows anything your imagination can come up with!

Additional policies

To WARM our HEATING PADs you will need a microwave with a turntable that is at least 10 inches wide.
Roll or fold your Hemp Heat Pad and place in microwave, being sure it can rotate freely.
How long it takes to heat your pad varies according to

what kind of filler you use
how full you fill it
how warm you want it
the wattage of your microwave oven

So it is important that you experiment to find out how long to heat your heat pad in your microwave.
Microwave for 30 seconds and check to see how warm it is. If it needs to be warmer, keep microwaving for 30 seconds at a time until you reach the desired temperature.
Care needs to be taken that you do not over heat your Hemp heating pad. Anything that is microwaved for to long can burn and our heat pads are no exception. Please see out return policy above,

DO I HAVE TO USE A MICROWAVE? No, an oven works just fine. Heat oven to 300 degrees and then turn it OFF. Place heat pad in a baking pan or cookie sheet and spread it out flat.
Place in oven for about 30 minutes. You can experiment a little with the time to get it just right, but be sure to always have the OVEN OFF before you put the heat pad in.

FOR A COLD PACK simply place your Hemp Heat Pad in a plastic bag and store in freezer, ready to use whenever you need it.

WASHING our heating pads is easy. Open the hook and loop seal and pour out all of the filler. It helps to take it outside to shake out that last little bit. Then close the seal and machine wash in warm or hot water and machine dry on warm or hot.
Hemp becomes softer with age and repeated washing until it takes on an almost suede like feel with a bounce to the fibers. You may wish to speed up this process by washing and drying it multiple times. There is a significant difference in the texture after about 8-12 cycles in the washer AND dryer.
