(Comunidades Unidas de Molinos)
Comunidades Unidas de Molinos, is the name and collective brand of an organization that brings together 24 peasant and indigenous peoples' communities of the Calchaquí Valley in Salta, near National Highway 40. In these communities, women are usually the ones who breed the sheep in mixed herds with goats. They hand-shear their livestock and then spin the wool with a spindle while taking them to graze on the hill. They give them shelter in pens at sunset every day, to protect them from harsh weather and natural predators. They usually use the yarns to weave by hand and it is usually the men who use the looms.
