Peruvian artisans used coiled wool to create this painterly image with depth and feeling. 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. 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.
