Table of Andean Types of Yarn - Aymara Expressions for and uses of - added

I also posted a chart of Aymara expressions for various types of camilid yarn traditionally produced in the Andes, as well as their uses.

Note that different kinds of yarn are used for different tasks and some yarn types are even associated with gender.
