so... I've been thinking about dying my own yarn since I often can't find what I want, so I figure I may as well dye my own. and while I'm at it I may as well dye a few more skeins while I'm at it right!? so I've concidered selling the extra skeins, maybe in an etsy shop or ebay or both. I want to be fairly priced though. and having not really shopped around for hand dyed yarn I'm wondering if someone here might know what the going rate is for hand dyed yarn?
I think I'll start with sock yarn because that's what I want to use, and if no one buys my yarn at least I'll have what I want.
also I'm thinking that it makes sense to put the yarn into skeins big enough for a pair of socks. but honestly I have yet to make socks with fingering weight yarn (only worsted, I want my "real" socks to be perfect!). how many yards should go into a skein of sock yarn in order to get an average pair of socks out of them? anyone know? this info would be useful even if just for personal knowledge.
