Tavistock - easy going sheepskin

A lack of colour may well be a style choice in the right context, perhaps within a modern home design – I’m long enough in the tooth to know that style is subjective. What I see before me is a sheepskin suited to wild swimming and a quick-drying.

The fur is short and so Tavistock doesn’t dominate in a room but sits politely.

Tavistock has an Appaloosa pattern of small swirls – absolutely LOVES a good shake, and I can see this one working in a tent just as it would cope on the sofa. Decide in your own time, rushing is less of a thing if you are sat comfortably.

Description

Tavistock is a town (Stoc) on the River Tavy, and one of three original Stannery towns around Dartmoor. “Stannery” literally contains the word “tannery”, but it’s from the huge metal ore deposits on Dartmoor and in Cornwall, rather than the thriving wool trades in these towns, that the name derives. 

A Stannary town was used to manage the collection of tin coinage, which was the duty payable on the metal tin smelted from the ore cassiterite mined in Devon and Cornwall. In Cornwall the duty was passed to the Duchy of Cornwall; in Devon to the Crown.

Context is key, and Tavistock sheepskin will excel at the water’s edge, perhaps on the banks of the river Tavy, where its ability to shake off the British weather will help raise your post wild-swim recovery to the next level. Don’t go for a made-made fibre in this context (made made fibres can’t get close to sheepskin) – dry yourself whilst stood on this sheepskin and sit down on it to get the towel properly between your toes.
