ASMR and Crafters

ASMR or Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response has been trending lately on youtube. Simply put it is a “deeply relaxing and comforting feeling, usually accompanied by tingling sensations in the head“. One way of experiencing this feeling is through sound.

A lot of research and work has been done to test whether such a feeling is obtained from these sounds. From a crafters perspective, this definitely is attested.

Ask any crafter to list what gives them joy and comfort. Out of the many things listed the sound of their craft is definitely one that a crafter enjoys. Whether it is the sound of two needles touching, the hum of a wheel spinning wheel, or fabric punctured from a needle, the sounds that are made are surely things that give pleasure to a crafter.

Fun fact: There are more than 10 million videos on Youtube of ASMR and IKEA released a  commercial with ASMR.
