The initial steps of tuft-setting are the same as for burling: secure matching yarn and remove the damage pile yarns to create a bare area. Next apply a clear-drying, latex-based seam cement on the clean spot with an absorbent cotton swab. You will now need a tuft-setting tool, but if this is not available, a thin claw punch or a thin lower nail may be substituted. Spot a loop of the wool in one end of the hard area and insert the tool against the U-shaped bottom portion of the loop. Drive this U-loop portion in the carpet backing with a very light tap of a hammer against the top of the tool. Steer clear of a heavy blow, since this can force the pile tuft through the fabric. Even worse, a very good blow can distort the backing into an enlarged hole that would prevent the usual tension in the backing by holding the replaced yarn in the carpet.
