I smoke (on and off) and I myself cannot stand the strong smell of smoke. I only smoke outside few times a week and I can honestly say that the smell of my jacket turns my stomach - it gets washed a lot. I only got one package that reeked of smoke, it was terrible and I smoke. I can only imagine what would that do to a non smoker or a baby etc.

I put down that I smoke on my questionnaires even though, technically the smoke would never get anywhere my craft stuff because I don't smoke everyday and because the smell bothers me myself so I tend to change my clothes right after I smoke - how did I not quit yet is beyond me.

I haven't had any issues with receiving things with pet hair on them - I feel that craftsters are really careful about that.  However, I am allergic to smoke and put that on my questionnaires. 

When I'm pairing swappers, if anyone puts on their questionnaire that they prefer not to be paired with a smoker and someone says they smoke only outside - I still won't pair them.  You just never know.  It never hurts to put it on there. Smiley

Everything I make contains a great deal of cat hair.   Tongue

When I started swapping I said that I'd rather not be paired with a smoker, but I've actually stopped doing that. I feel I might miss awesome crafts from swappers who do smoke... And most don't seem to craft while smoking/smoke in the craft room so I've never received a super-smelly package.

Though I try to make sure my stuff is (mostly) dog-hair free, my dog sheds a lot and when you're knitting or crocheting, a certain amount almost certainly gets stuck in there.  I always put on my questionnaire that there WILL be dog hair.  I should probably also put that, since I have waist-length hair myself, at least a piece or two is probably knit/crocheted into everything I do, even though I try really really hard to catch any that gets caught and pull it out.  And even if you wash it, it's stuck in there.  With some projects it's not so much an issue, with others...

(I sent my dad Tetris Afghan 1.0 and he spent an entire weekend picking my and my dog's hair out of it - of course, I wasn't careful with that one because 1) it was huge and crocheted during the Ravalympics - so in a hurry, and 2) I knew it was going to him.  Oddly, the dog hair was a lot less of an issue because he could pull that right out, my hair, on the other hand, was quite firmly crocheted in!)

Ludi, I'm disappointed, I don't think I received and cat hair from you.  I demand a do-over!  ;p

My mama smokes still, she just got back from Egypt(looking like the last time finally!!), but she's never anywhere near my crafting area...We've also got a little palm and chihauhau mix who's also never on my level of the house (I'm a basement dwelling crafter haha!!) I'm really careful to package anything I'm shipping down in my room so its stays free of everything.

 Me personally, I've got asthma, so smoke does bother me...but with a mom whose smoked for as long as I can remember, and aunt that smoked (hell half my family smoked, kind of amazing that I never did ha ha!!), but stuff that smells of smoke doesnt really bother me, its either washable or I can hang it out on the clothes line to air out. (I've found nothing gets the smell of smoke out best than that cold winter air!)

Ofc to each his/her own, we all have our preferences and ocd issues...we wouldnt be crafter's after all if we werent a little persnickity =P

Heh... I guess I should start warning for human hairs too. My hair is short, but I still manage to knit/crochet it in at times.

I knit or crochet on the go at times, but I try to wash the item before finishing it if it's supposed to be worn or if it's going to a child. There's all kinds of allergens on the subway and busses.

I'm sure my hair finds it's way into something I make, or at least into the packing tape.  My hair is all the way down my back.  I try to keep it tied back.  But, sometimes, my hair scrunchy slips off.  My hair is fine, not thick.  Because I am allergic to smoke and cat dander, I absolutely cannot have it in/on the crafted items I receive.  That being said, I have swapped w/both people who smoke and/or have cats.  I've never had a problem w/it.  I think we all try to be conscientious when it comes to our swapping partners.  I know I do.
