Do I need to create a different product type for each list of colors?
I have two types of fabrics(flat and with patterns). For the ones that are flat I only need to allow color choice, for the ones with pattern I need the choice for both color and pattern.
I can have many different types of fabric, both in the flat and pattern category, with distinct color/pattern catalogue.
My question is: do I need to create a different product type for each type of fabric(eg.chintz, blackout, etc.) to select a different list of colors/patterns?
The reason I ask is because all the fields would be the same with the exception of the color/pattern list. It makes sense to have some sort of model, and add from there, but I can't figure out how.
