Cyrenaica, most people know as "box of sand" in Libya, is actually a unique place. Unique because only on its plateau (and only there) silphium grew, the most important resource of the city of Cyrene; an endangered bush since emperor Nero times, which made it to our times as we see being represented in the heraldic of Italian military insignia.
As unique as this plant is our Cirenaica throw, made from pure wool. The colours are muted shades, ethereal as Sahara desert grains of sand, which lap upon the plateau where once the legendary silphium grew. A warm embrace, just the flavor needed for the cold autumn and winter evenings.
