They spin and dye all the wool themselves, and use all natural materials to dye the wool. They use cochineal, a funky parasite that grows on cactus, to get the red color. They use indigo to get the blue colors.
And here's some nifty animal cross stitch from the Oaxaca Textile Museum.
Rows of ducks and geese and birdies. On a cloth.
