What is a fiber artist?             
Well, the short answer is someone who makes works of art out of fiber. And what is fiber? It can be many things. Fiber can be the fluffy stuff we cut off of sheep, goats, or rabbits. Fiber can be the hair we brush from our cats or dogs. Fiber can come from more exotic animals, like Yak, buffalo, or camel.
Fiber can also come from plant sources. Cotton, flax, hemp, even corn and bamboo are all examples of fiber plants.
And of course, fiber can be synthetically made, too. Acrylic, nylon, polyester, tencel, rayon are common synthetic fibers. So what does a fiber artist do? A fiber artist turns these raw materials into finished products. There are various methods of doing this, but all have to start with turning the fiber in to yarn or thread. Many people out there like to spin their own yarn.
