It's llamas to looms and beyond! Weaving is one of the simplest and oldest ways of creating cloth and fabric. Not to mention how easily it integrates math, science, art, and critical small motor skills. The slideshow takes you around the world visiting weavers still practicing their ancestors’ techniques to make clothing that lasts a lifetime. The best?
