Yarn Art

Handspun is sometimes created as a standalone work of art, other times as something that will go on to become a new creation by way of knitting, crocheting or weaving.

Painters sign their names to their works, but what about spinners? Many spinners develop a style that needs no signature to identify it as their own. Here are some works by spinners I admire for their creativity and sense of style. I’ll let the art speak for itself.

    How very true regarding a signature style. I recognised the top yarn as Sarah’s before I noticed the name above it, because it’s a sort of yarn which I’ve come to think of as her style :)
    I think of them more like a chef’s signature dish though.. but then it’s always about food with me.

    hi d! great selections, I’m honored that you’ve put my yarn in there! I think you are on to something with your ’signature style’ idea. I’m always hella tickled when someone says they recognize my work as *mine*.

    best, v
