Custom work and pricing
I currently don’t have any custom slots available. I expect a few custom or semi custom slots to be released as they come - if you’re on Facebook you can follow available spots in my group, Karelia Crafted Chatter.
CURRENT PRICING APRIL 2020 ONWARDS
Base price is 140€/m
The price per meter includes warp and weft, hand painted or (semi) solid dye, basic middle markers and hemming, raw or twisted fringe. Half is paid when work begins as non-refundable design and materials fee and the rest is due when work is finished and the item ready to ship.
Length is measured STIH (soft tape in hand) after wash and iron and is charged per length ordered. Please allow up to 2,5% shorter or possibly several inches longer than ordered length.
All wraps arrive washed and ready to wear. Work is always priced to current price list when work is finished. Ask for a quote if you need help or accommodations as necessary (I usually have in stock yarns I can offer discounts on).
Minimum order for full custom warps is 9 meters. Custom dyed slots with shared cotton blend warp and pattern options are available for shorter lengths.

I carry and order mostly Saltwater Rose threads and Bockens and combed cotton from Lankava. Most of it is included in the base price. Basically when the price of the yarn starts going near 200€/m I’m going to need to add some to the costs.
I’m willing to weave in any yarn you purchase but can not guarantee it will be baby wrap appropriate. Please ask before buying and shipping the yarn. There is a discount available.
