Have you seen the Spring 2011 issue of Fiber Arts magazine? There is an article about handspun art-as-yarn.
The interviews show the depth of emotion, curiosity and discovery behind the artist who spin these works of art. Art yarn is an area of art that is growing rapidly- especially with the help of online spinning groups and Ravelry.com.
The article in the magazine continues online with bonus pictures of art yarn made by the artist who were interviewed.
This is a great article for those who create art yarn and for those who admire such creative art.
