As a general rule, I charge anywhere from 5 cents to 25 cents a yard. I'll charge more or less depending on how fine the fiber is. Or if I hand dyed the fiber myself, or prepared it from raw fleece. I'll also consider what I spent on the fiber itself. If I get a good deal, I'm fine with passing that on to the buyer. Besides, I sell my hand spuns just so I can buy more fiber!

Gorgeous hand spuns by the way!

Thank you for the nice comments on my homespun. My thought was if I could sell some I could buy more fiber......I found some on ebay that I REALLY like.

Hello My name is Trina and I am a fiberaholic....

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

I am logged in, but I'm wondering if the pics might be in TrinaOR's blog? Oh well, I'm sure they are lovely indeed.

Pricing hand spun yarn
Dear Trina, If you visit my web site on the fiber page i have a pricing chart. I do mainly art type yarns. Yours are very lovely and so very beautifully done!! I just went to a nearby yarn store in my rural VT town, and they had hand dyed sock weight, about 200 yds for $32 and up. That was in color families of hand spot dyed.Now for single colors you should go less. Only you can determine the time and work. However the best advice is to visit a yarn shop and see what similar yarns would go for... and remember YOURS Is ART!
Hope this helps. This is my first post to this site and I am so happy to be here, i am always looking for spinners!! See my spinning journey on the websites below. I LOVE SPINNING!

Stunning yarn! I sell mine for $6 - $10/oz., depending on the fineness of the yarn. That's for Corriedale and Merino. Any fibre which was much more expensive, I would up the price a bit, but I find that the actual cost of the fibre does not have that much to do with the cost of the yarn.
