The UK’s leading specialist yarn manufacturer.
Passion. Innovation. Expertise.
Some qualities remain constant, no matter how much an industry changes. At Laxtons, we strive for excellence and we have done for over a hundred years. Tastes change and fashion evolves but the appeal of wool is timeless.
Today, we offer a premium yarn product that promotes quality, traceability and, for many customers, a bespoke finish, tailored to their requirements. With a tradition for collaboration, our in-house experts are here to help as little or as much as required and it’s with a sense of pride that we invest as much in our team as we do our machinery.
A tradition for innovation backed by over 100 years of heritage.
The Laxton name has been synonymous with spinning fancy and worsted yarns since 1907.
Quickly establishing itself as an innovator in the sector, modern technology sits alongside traditional skills. Our story is as rich as the many fabrics we have helped create and we are as excited for the next 100 years as we are proud of the past century.
Meet the experts.
Our team of experts have a wealth of industry knowledge backed by a canny knack of being able to make a good project become great. We would never say we’ve been there and done it all but there’s a fair chance we’ve got the experience to help.
Our home. Where technology meets tradition...
After re-shoring 100% of our manufacturing in December 2009, we have managed to invest in additional manufacturing capacity over the previous seven years. As a result, we outgrew our old premises and have built a state-of-the-art new spinning mill not only increasing our capacity with new machinery but also our capability in being able to offer an even more diverse range of yarns for many different markets and end uses. We recently moved into our new premises and are looking forward to showcasing what is possible in our new factory.
