What type of yarn is best for gun tufting?
We recommend our Primary tufting cloth, which is 60% polyester, 40% cotton fabric with an open weave. It’s durable enough for all machine tufting.
Can you punch needle on any fabric?
You can use a variety of fabrics, from monk’s cloth—the most popular choice for traditional punch needle rug hooking—to traditional linen, but the weave tightness should be appropriate for the thickness of your punch needle (which corresponds to your thread size).
What is the difference between punch needle and rug hooking?
Punch needle punches the loops down into the work, whereas rug hooking uses a different tool to pull the loops up through the work.
Does punch needle unravel?
Every time you push The Oxford Punch Needle down, it pushes down a long end of yarn. When you bring The Oxford Punch Needle back up, it folds this end into a loop. There are no knots used. The tightness of all the loops packed together keeps it from unraveling.
