    While touring Argentina, The Hot Pink Ladies decided to get off the beaten path and travel to Seclantas (in Northwestern Argentina) and experience for a day, the life of the craftsmen who weave beautiful ponchos and blankets. We had been staying in luxury at the Cafayate Wine Resort.

    Our captain, Azparzych, insisted that we take a guide from the winery with us who knew how to find the adobe craftsmen houses. Unfortunately, the guide had too much wine the night before and passed out in the back of the van.

    Our iPads and iPhones were just not getting a signal, but Cookbook guru, JackieOhNo! remembered to pack an old fashioned paper map and she became our navigator.

    FloridaNative had done some research on the area, and was able to share her knowledge of the gorgeous scenery with the rest of us.

    After a short drive we pulled up to an adobe house with chickens running around everywhere.

    Babzy saw the hand painted “Artesania” sign and we knew we’d found our destination. We all jumped out of the van (except for the sleeping guide) and met the Guzman family.

    Fortunately, DreamoBway knew the language and could interpret for us. Senor Guzman explained that it takes a month to make one sheep or llama wool poncho and the whole family helps.

    They do everything themselves, even dying the wool by hand. He quickly put us to work. Iewe was in charge of the loom. It’s a good thing she works out, because that’s back breaking work!

    Kristin V was in charge of dying the spun wool in hot water with natural dyes. She had to use lemon as a mordant for the dye to adhere to the fiber and avoid fading.

    Realbirdlady hung the dyed wool in the sun to dry.

    Because she always keeps her cool, Ice Cool Kitty was chosen to finish the items by ironing them with a charcoal iron.

    The rest of us helped where ever we were needed.

    At the end of the day, Senor Guzman introduced us to his neighbor, the local parrillero (we would call this a grill master). He made a large fire in a pit on the ground with a grill placed over it. When the fire was ready, he placed large beef steaks on the grill.

    PanNan was chosen as sous chef and she helped prepare the Chimichurri sauce by hand. Believe me, it’s a lot easier in the food processor!

    The neighbor families brought a variety of salads and fresh citrus, Mrs. Guzman got out the china she received as a gift from a European tourist, and we sat on rough tables outside and enjoyed one of the best meals of the trip so far!
