Raúl Rafael – PERU

Felicita lives in Chinchero, Cuzco’s most important district for traditional Peruvian yarn-spinning and weaving. She takes care of her animals in the morning and, in the a ernoon, makes yarn by passing sheep’s wool between her fingers and using a wooden wheel to make it finer. The yarn is then dyed using plants, roots and parasites such as the cochineal so that designs can be created on the skirts, hats and other accessories that will be sold in the city of Cuzco.
