My microwaveable beanbag thingy is a woven cotton fabric.  Wool would probably be okay, too.  Any small dried grain or legume can be used to fill them with, I like sushi rice for its size.

I think flanel would be good. Nice and soft.

I have a hot/cold pack that's filled with rice and made out of flannel. Flannel works really well, and rice keeps the heat. Plus you can put it in the freezer.

I fill my flannel bags with flax. For every second you heat it you get one minute of heat. 45 seconds = 45 minutes. It does not smell, and can also be placed in the freezer. I made nice silky pillow cases to put on them after they come  out of the microwave.
 For migranes it works great if you make them long enough to go from temple to temple. I have a lot of flax if you would like some, d

I used to get migraines a lot, and I had of those pillows, but it had cherry seeds in it. People keep telling me that cold is supposed to be better for migraines, but there was nothing like the feel of that thing wrapped around my head, all warm and the seeds were small enough to squish it down into my eye sockets. I don't know about your boyfriend, but I like a little pressure on my eyes when I get a migraine, and I'm not sure flax seeds would be heavy enough. Then again, I have no idea where to get cherry seeds. Luckily, I don't get them much anymore, but that pillow thing was so nice... let us know what you finally do end up using, because I had a horrible migraine on Thurs. and could have used one. I had completely forgotten about that pillow- thanks for reminding me about it!
