Post production tasks: textiles (Spain)

Some artisans from Val de San Lorenzo, provide coloured wool to women from neighbouring villages, so that they can knit jerseys which they then sell in their shops. For each garment the women received a pre-established payment. They also use the wool from their own sheep which they process, spin and knit themselves to make jumpers and socks.
