Waves of warmth in thermal gear

THERE can be little doubt winter is back. That means cold noses, hands and feet.

Dyfed-based Thermal Concepts claims to have three products guaranteed to take the chill out of winter. They all use a non-gel composite, which releases warmth over several hours after 2-5mins in a microwave.

Expected to be most popular is the firms handwarmer, Chillbuster, priced at £19.95. Other items in the range include a bed warmer/heat pad (£19.95) and Snugglesafe (£25.60), which is designed to warm either sick or young animals (01239-614005).
