Preparing your Yarn for Tufting

This is one of the most important steps in Tufting with your cut pile or loop pile tufting machine. Watch this video to see Geoff set up yarn for tufting. Preparing your yarn is one of the most important steps in the tufting process. The yarn should be free flowing, cones and yarn winders are very useful. Wrapping it around anything cylindrical as well to get a yarn cake will help. There is no mechanism in any tufting machine to feed yarn, this is why having loose and free flowing yarn is so important for tufting with your tufting gun. You can use all types of yarn with your tuft love, spider cut pile.
