ECUADOR - NOVEMBER 22:  Jose Carlos de la Torre sits carding alpaca wool inside his workshop in Carabuela, Ecuador, Wednesday, November 22, 2006. Carding is the last step in preparing the wool for spinning which cleans, separates, and straightens the wool fibers. The finished batt or rolag of soft, fluffy wool makes spinning easier.
