Since 500 B.C. the Zapotecs of the central valleys of Oaxaca have been weaving and trading their textiles, originally made from cotton, all over Latin America. After being conquered by the Aztecs and then the Spanish they were introduced to the wool of the Merino sheep which is prized for it's long fibers; making the process of spinning easier and giving additional strength to the fabric. The weavers in Teotitlan today source their best quality wool from San Bartolo Chichicapa in the Mixteca region of Oaxaca.
