Cost of Certification

The cost of certification is very small as a proportion of the cost of yarn.

The chart below identifies certification as 1.7% assuming a yarn cost of US $22.00 kg.

The cost of the raw wool has been calculated using the five year average price of 19 micron wool converted to USD at .75

Assuming approximately 300 grams of wool in a sweater, the cost of certification for the garment would be approx US 12 cents.
