Cirone – 245


Designed by Larisa Demos

Jenny Cirone was a remarkable woman. As a girl in 1916, when she moved to the coast of Downeast Maine with her family, she started tending a small flock of sheep that she shepherded for over 80 years. Jenny’s flock still thrives on the uninhabited islands where her Father was a lighthouse keeper. This delicate crescent shawlette features a botanical lace border reminiscent of the wild grasses and seaweed that feeds her flock.
