Peru’s rich textile heritage and culture of artistry preserve this source of income for artisans who work to maintain the tradition of crafting alpaca yarn.
The highland communities wide-ranging alpaca herds require shepherds and their families to travel long distances, often at the expense of children consistently attending a regular school.
