When visiting the churches of Chiloe we had the chance of going to the artisanat of Dalcahue. The local handicrafts of Chiloé are quite reknown: they mostly offer knit ware - hats, socks, ponchos and the like.
What to buy: I did buy a pair of socks and I tell you: they really do keep my feet warm!!!
