The making of each blanket starts with the rub process of the fiber, this will allow the fibrils to remain compact, facilitating the tissue. Following by the weaving, for this type of fiber, due to the delicacy and thickness, the artisans only use their hands and a flat surface on which the blanket is spread, once the weaving is completed, the freezing process of the blanket takes between 24 to 48 hours, this will allow the fibers to be much more stabilized to finally perfect details with the help of a felt needle. The manufacture of each blanket takes an approximate 7 days.
