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.
