Like many other art mediums, tufting has side effects that may impact your health.
Please consider taking some safety precautions if needed.
The sound of the tufting machine is similar to a loud sewing machine.
You can tuft using earplugs or noise-cancelling headphones.
Yarn is made of loose fibres that are rolled together to create a continuous strand.
When the fibre moves through the head of a tufting machine, it sheds, causing you to breathe in small amounts of those shed fibres.
The lasting effects of inhaling yarn shedding vary depending on how frequently you tuft.
Regardless, we recommend wearing a mask while you tuft.
Adhesives range in toxicity levels and odours; some can pose a respiratory threat.
We recommend applying adhesive in a well-ventilated area and wearing a mask and gloves during application.
Tufting machines can be heavy.
If your wrists, feet, or back start to ache, take a break and stretch!
We recommend practising good posture while tufting.
