This is my 2nd purchase from Chic Yarn, both gifts to my boyfriend. We both actively rock climb, camp and hike so these are a real treat after a long day, he's also said that they're great for hiking. The first pair are a green pair which he LOVES, I'm kind of jealous of them. Our 3 year anniversary is soon so I decided another pair of these bad boys would be great. The first pair are thicker than this pair and the first pair were also a bit more expensive so I'm sure that has something to do with it, but they are both GREAT pairs. He still wears the first pair at least once a week and they're about 2 years old.

These socks are amazing! I love that this angora is from a local homesteader with animals that are loved and respected.

I used the lovely Handspun mohair to weave accents into a wool and alpaca scarf and hat. Beautiful! Thanks!

About

A passion for fiber

Most of my life was spent in medical studies to please my parents. But no matter how tough it got, my source of stress relief was always fiber. Being Vietnamese, working hard is part of me. Thus I have always worked twice as hard to be able to enjoy the fiber that I love. I started with taking a handspinning class in college at UC davis which blossomed into raising angora rabbits, a livestock small enough for my petite size and easy to manage. I moved 12 rabbits and 6 newborn babies ( that travelled in my pocket) from California to St. Louis, where I did my medical training. I soon found out that I love doing fiber more than showing rabbits. Although I endured the rigors of an MD-PhD program at Washington University Medical School, my passion for fiber was so strong I still manage to do fiber show and maintain a fiber business. One of my success story is my inclusion as a fiber artist in "Handpaint Country" by XRX inc. where I was featured as a midwest fiber dyer. Motherhood slowed my shows and travels by 2001 but I learned about Etsy via a mom at my child's school. I started the Etsy shop in 2009 and have become more and more of an avid participant.
I get inspired from travels. As an immigrant, I view the U.S. from a very different perspective. I love how vast this country is and all the beautiful landscapes I have seen and will continue to explore. The sweeping scenes are reflected in my dye works of my yarn and fiber.

    I enjoy working with Zeilinger's wool because they are a small family run business that gives me a lot of attention. They help other small wool producers such as myself market domestic wool. There's always someone helpful when you call.
