Our Yarns

Founded with a knowledge of fibre and an enthusiasm for innovative processes, yarn is both our passion and our livelihood.

Internationally renowned for creating premium quality worsted and fancy yarns for a broad array of textiles, from carpets and upholstery, to tailoring and couture fabrics, we understand the importance of choosing the right fibre, fit for purpose.

So, when it comes to our handknit yarns we know that the tactile process of crafting by hand is as important as the finished project. That’s why we have selected the best British wool and taken care and consideration throughout the production in our mill, to make something so good we’ve put our name on it.

These yarns are spun from the finest fibres, responsibly sourced and carefully handled, byLaxtons.
