I knit and crochet things to sell. I was extremely sick for the last few years, so haven’t really been making and selling anything, but trying to get back into it.
I had a conversation with a friend recently about selling knitted Aran jumpers made out of acrylic yarn.
I am in the process of knitting one out of acrylic yarn right now because wool is expensive where I live and I just don’t have the money for wool right now. Obviously I would love to use 100% wool but I just can’t at the moment.
She told me that I could probably sell a knitted Aran jumper, knitted with acrylic yarn, for a couple hundred dollars even though it isn’t made with wool. That is her opinion.
My opinion, is that I don’t think anyone would pay that much unless it was knit with 100% wool.
I’m curious about others opinions.
Do you think pricing matters based on what the product is made out of, especially when it is knitted or crocheted?
Thank you in advance!
