With seven decades of experience and a lifetime immersed in this trade, this farmer still remembers her wool childhood, when at just six years old she had to spin with the spindle and, at nine, shear a sheep for each year of life up to date. She learned from her mother, like many peasant women in the region. Daughter of rigor, it has faced the calamities of time on several occasions, from the scorching fire of the devastating fires that occurred a few years ago, to the current drought that affects the area.
