INCA: LLAMAS & LOOMS
Take a trip with us to the Andes, one of the highest mountain ranges in the world. Learn how llamas help make wonderfully warm and woolly clothing that lasts a lifetime. Meet kids that weave clothing for the whole family--shearing llamas, spinning, dyeing yarn with insects picked off cactus, and weaving on looms! You’ll even learn the ancient symbols of the Incas and pre-Incas still woven into textiles and fabric worn today in the high Andes. Become a weaving master yourself after weaving a colorful yarn armband to wear and take home.
