Have you thought about buying from a developing country. A two colour
necker in Uganda costs 1800Ush or about one UK pound. A little export
import arrangement could benefit them and you considerably. If you want
to be put in touch do let me know.
I know of a school where the neckers would be made mainly by children
who have been orphaned by one of the many diseases which affect people
in that country. The children are returning to a Scout School /
Workshop to gain skills to give them a life ahead.
