'My name is Gregorio Ruiz and I learned my craft when I was a boy. I remember how my grandmother would take me to the village where the sheep were. There they were sheared and we'd bring home wool to work with. First we'd wash it and then leave it in the sun, beating it with rods of yagalan, a very strong wood from the trees in the region. This was lots of fun, and it serves to soften the wool so that we can separate the fibers. And so, without even knowing it, we worked while playing from the time we were children in a very important part of processing wool.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
