Overknitting. A common problem here at the Uknit2 headquarters. Keep reading to find out about the effective and attractive Hot Cold Comfort packs. There is a coupon code just for my readers and best of all, you could win a Thumb Wrap of your very own! Because you know I’m an enabler when it comes to excessive knitting…
My right hand frequently gives me trouble when I knit, type, or write too much. Tired of ibuprofen and leaky Ziplock bags of ice, I went online in search of some kind of hand sleeve that I could use instead. I stumbled upon Hot Cold Comfort Natural Pain Relief products by the Ferris Wheels.
I contacted them and they were nice enough to provide me with one of their Thumb Wraps to try out, and one to give away (details at bottom). Here’s what the Ferris Wheels have to say about their product:
This isn’t your grandma’s rice sock, folks, this is really nice, really pretty stuff. These rice wraps provide moist heat when microwaved, and can also be frozen to treat inflamation.
The Thumb Wrap ($20.95) comes in your choice of seven different flannel prints. Mine is the houndstooth. You can adjust the fit of the wrap by shaking the rice up or down and spreading it with your fingers until it is comfortable.
I love that it covers the entire thumb joint very well, and also has the added benefit of wrapping nicely around the wrist to provide heat/cold there as well.
While you may not be able to knit while wearing it, you can easily type, talk on the phone, pick up, and go on about your daily business.
I prefer mine to be cold (works best with my type of pain), but it felt really yummy warmed up.
In addition to neck, shoulder, back, sinus, eye, feet, and hot flash products, Hot Cold Comfort offers other products that would specifically interest knitters and crocheters: a slip-on wrap for wrists, wrist supports that can be heated or chilled, and hand mitts.
One of my favorite products is the Heat/Cold Headband Pack. Perfect for headaches and TMJ pain.
All of their products come in several pattern choices. Here are the options for the Thumb Wrap:
You can also choose to have your Hot Cold Pack scented (no charge) with lavender or chamomile essential oil. If scented products bother you, choose unscented. Want another scent or want to use aromatherapy? HotColdComfort offers aromatherapy spritzers to use on your packs. What a great idea! They offer blends such as: Nausea Relief (great for pregnancy or illness), Sinus Ease, Relax, Energizer, and Sore Joint Relief. The sprays are all natural, use essential oils, and are specifically formulated for use on Microwave Heat an Cold Packs.
