Once ashore in Puerto Montt, were whisked away to a beautiful suburb of where the talented ladies of Lana Chucao treated our crew to a fantastic day of dyeing, spinning weaving and of course, shopping. Lana Chucao makes fantastic artisan yarns with 100% Chilean wool in amazing colors, in both novelty and plain.
