Additional Notes:
Spanish ..... Prenda de abrigo larga y confeccionada preferentemente con pieles de guanaco (Lama guanicoe) con la que se cubrían completamente, del cuello a las rodillas, asociados a la cultural Selknam, en el extremo sur de Chile. En ocasiones esta capa se confeccionaba con piel de zorro (Vulpes vulpes) o cururo (Spalacopus cyanus), éste último era usado por los grupos de más al norte. Las pieles se raspaban y luego se dejaban secar estiradas mediante estacas. Entonces se procedía a unirlas mediante nervaduras del mismo animal, usadas como hilo. La capa del hombre no se fijaba a ninguna parte del cuerpo, por lo que debía sujetar los dos bordes superiores con la mano izquierda sobre el pecho. Esto permitía a los cazadores quitarse la capa con mayor facilidad y con ello poder capturar más rápidamente a sus presas. La capa de la mujer, en cambio, se afirmaba mediante dos nervaduras de guanaco alrededor de los hombros. La piel de guanaco le servía para proteger a sus hijos pequeños del frío, ya que los colocaba en su espalda bajo ella.
