Why is this so expensive?

http://hyenacart.com/prod_details_auction.php?id=27807&vid=334

Is there something I don't know? Is the thread 24K gold? Yikes! It's cute, but that's a lot of $$ for a stuffed animal!!

Handmade, very labour intensive, and made from Alpaca Wool (expensive wool). It is super cute but, I'm with the others, I'd be afraid to let me kid play with it.

That is beautiful and if I had the means I would be bidding also.

The time taken to make that would actually suprise you. I am sure even at that price she still isnt making minimum wage.

Also, keep in mind ladies, that the women behind these items read these boards and it upsets them to see people who say these types of things.

You can think its a lot for an item...but other people dont see it that way and think they are worth every penny.

What she said

Crocheting takes f-o-r-e-v-e-r, & that's just for simple stuff.

I bet she will be sad when she has to say goodbye to her little creation.

Re: Why is this so expensive?

It's adorable! We can't afford it, but if we could I would be very tempted. I can definitely see a grandma-to-be splurging on it for a baby on the way

As far as the cost...it is alot, but it's made with top-line fiber and probably took alot of time. The description says: Tolstoy is bar far the most labor-intesive creature I've ever knit. He was worth every minute."

I can only assume that many, many hours went into this.
