Fiber Arts Abroad: Yarn-Spotting in Israel

February 2nd, 2010

While traveling in Israel recently, I came across a couple wonderful fiber displays.  Working in Lion Brand’s NYC offices above the Lion Brand Yarn Studio, I get to see the creative use of yarn for the window display on a regular basis.  I always love seeing other retailers use yarn in displays, and I was even more excited to see yarn used for a retail display in Jerusalem!  The bright colors draped from branches and dropped into shopping bags lining the bottom of the window.

A week later while roaming the narrow sidewalks of Jaffa, I came across a fiber art gallery.  As in the picture below, all the art was felted, from the initial felted “canvas” to the yarn details felted over it.

On a trip with lots of site-seeing and very little time to knit, the occasional fiber-arts spotting was especially comforting.
