Caption

Coloured yarn at cochineal farm. Yarn dyed using carmine, a natural red dye obtained by crushing cochineal bugs (Dactylopius coccus). These small white scale insects live on and are farmed from Opuntia cacti (also called the nopal or prickly pear cactus). Photographed in 2016, at Rancho La Nopalera, San Bartolo Coyotepec, Oaxaca, Mexico.
