Description

A rising tree spreads its strong canopy of autumn leaves. To make coiled wool tapestries, Peruvian weavers use wool from sheep of the Andes. They wash it in a local river, card and dye it. It is a lengthy, labor intensive operation. Blending different colors to create specific hues, they roll the wool fibers into long strands, ready to create a tapestry on a wooden loom. Cotton threads form the warp; wool coils form the weft.
