When other work is scarce, men help their wives with the knitting.
Mr. Juan is the husband of Mrs. Estela Ticona who is one of the knitters with Daria's group. He is 70 years old and normally works with livestock such as sheep, lambs, pigs and chickens. Juan doesn't weave finger puppets but he likes to help his wife by untangling the spun alpaca and acrylic fibers for her. He is always smiling, is very cheerful and loves telling stories to anyone who lends an ear.
