Custom Order Pricing

I accept orders for a limited number of custom fingerwoven pieces.The style, pattern, size, and materials of the fingerweaving must be agreed upon before any work begins.

If I supply the yarn, the yarn will be commercial yarn. If you desire to have yarn that is hand spun and natural dies I would request that you supply the yarn.


The price of each item is based on the style of weaving, the number of square inches of weaving, the size of the yarn used, and the average number of changes in the pattern for each inch of width.

  • Style of weaving --- Warpface, openface, or interlinked
  • Square inches of weaving -- Length of woven area times the width of the woven area,
  • Size of yarn ----- Number of wrap of yarn per inch
  • Change in pattern --- Change in color, line of beads, line of twining, etc.
  • Type of fringe --- Twisted, 3 strand braid, 4 strand braid, strips of base weave, ect.


To Illustrate the pricing procedure, the price for Sash 053 will be used as an example.
Step1:Record the following information about the sash.

Sash (053)

Step1: The following information is needed,
    • Pattern ---- Open face, solid with diamond bead pattern and twined zig-zag pattern on border
    • Total Length -------- 68 inches
    • Width ----------------- 3 3/4 inches
    • Length of weaving --- 32 inches
    • Fringe ---- braided
    • Material ---- wool, 2ply, 14 wraps/inch

Step2: Based on the style of weaving, caculate the base price per square inch.
  • For warpface weaving and oprnface weaving.
    14 wraps/inch X $0.10 = $1.40 (base price)
  • For interlinked weaving.
    14 wraps/inch X $0.75 = $1.05 (base price)

Step3: Caculate the average number of changes in the pattern for each inch of width.

In the example shown above there are a total of 8 changes:
  • 2 rowes of twining.
  • 2 color changes.
  • 4 lines of beads.
  • = a total of 8 changes.

To find the average number of changes in the pattern for each inch of width, divide the number of changes (8) by the width of the sash (3.75 inches)

8 / 3.75 inches = 2.133 (average number of changes)

Step4:Caculate the the aditional charge for the changes.

(average number of changes)2.1 times $0.10 = $0.21

Step5: Caculate the total price per square inch.
  • $1.40 (base price) + $0.21 (aditional charge for changes)=
  • Total charge for each square inch of weaving = $1.61/square inch

Step6: Caculate the price of the sash.

The price of the sash is equal to:

  • The length of weaving ( 32 inches)times
  • The width of the sash(3.75 inches)times
  • The price per square inch ($1.61 /square inch)equals.
  • $1.61 /square inch X 32 inches (length) X 3.75 (width) = $193.20
