The fourth-oldest school in the country experienced a blast of fiber-arts creativity Tuesday.

The “yarn-bombing” by agents from Lady Dye Yarns left the sign for the Eliot School festooned with color.

Diane Ivey, the JP entrepreneur behind Lady Dye, said that unlike some acts of “yarn graffiti,” this one was sanctioned. A crew from WCVB’s Chronicle was there for portions of the 90-minute yarning. Other recent yarn bombings perpetrated by Ivey’s group include a bench at the Arboretum.

The Eliot School, at 24 Eliot St., offers a range of classes in crafts and fine arts.
