From our relatively humble beginnings in 1907, when the company was formed as Holmes Laxton & Co, Laxtons has now become one of the leading manufacturers of worsted and fancy yarns in Europe. After bringing all our production back into the UK in 2009, we have since invested in additional manufacturing capacity and as a result built a new state-of-the-art production facility, 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 ARE LAXTONS
Given the challenging circumstances we are all faced with, the resurgence of interest from consumers who value the provenance and origin of the product continues to grow. In addition, with our emphasis on natural fibres, predominantly wool, we are addressing the growing demands that the global consumer is placing on traceability issues, sustainability and the effect manufacturing has on the environment.
