Easily go for the higher end, why?

hand made, non-mass produced one-off item, connotations of a bit more care and passion for the making than some off the peg saturday market stuff, it is way above that.

Personally I think £35 is not high enough, imagine you had some queries from a potential outlet, even small numbers, if they saw your retail price at 35 they will want to pay half that, which kiboshes your take.

Also I might try selling some with a brooch as in the last pic, I know that is a 'serving suggestion' but it makes the stole a different garment and it is a nice package, again unique and interesting, especially if the brooches themselves are hand twisted, which that one looks like.

As usual Sally, lovely work.

Gareth is doing some really sweet sheep annular brooches at the moment, hoping they will go well with the stoles at the wool festival in a fornight.
Good point about trade prices though. I think at the moment that my philosophy is that everything I sell is at 'trade' price. n most cases, any of the things I make could stand a mark-up in a shop situation, so in the meantime its the same price for everyone :D

£35 and not a penny less, they are worth every penny, and then some.

nothing to do with the poll - but about the event in question! In the Sept edition of the Journal for weavers spinners and dyers there is a review of the event which includes the following "What an interesting show it turned out to be..................There were ladies who bred sheep and knitted and got together to form a business; felt makers with absolutely gorgeous pointy hats and beautiful fleeces;..........."
Shame they didn't admire the shawls as well, but I guess you can't have everything!!!!

Sally just caught this thread - is Gareth still doing the sheep annulars? If so how much as they are awful cute and I would love one.

Sophia :D
