It reminds me of the ocean or something. I bet it would knit up into a pretty shawl.

Well, that yarn I just dyed, didn't spin, but when I do spin it's with wool like this.

It's wool sheared from sheep (or alpaca) that is cleaned(by someone else, LOL).

Great colors! I love yarn shops. Went to WEBS in Mass a few weeks ago. Talk about heaven!

How much would a double crocheted scarf sell for on etsy ?

It depends on the worth you put on your work and the cost of the yarn. Acrylic isn't going to sell for very much. So say you spent $4 on a skein of yarn and you don't use the whole skein. Work out how much it is per ounce of skein and weigh the remaining yarn or the finished product. That should give you a close amount to the cost of the yarn. Add on the worth of your work (time spent). Then you need to factor in fees (etsy and PP) and shipping.
I hope that helps!
