After shifting back production to UK in 2010, 109 years old Bradford based spinner Laxtons is now doubling production capacity in a new location. In the process, Laxtons which produces fancy and worsted wool yarns for hand knitting, upholstery and clothing will also shift its current plant and the existing team to the new Sapper Jordan Rossi Park facility.

“The company supplies its yarns to knitters like Debbie Bliss, Erika Knight and John Lewis and also apparel brands including Chanel, Jaeger and Jack Wills,” UK media reported.

“We will be further investing in new machinery to allow us to grow the upholstery and clothing yarn ranges,” Laxtons director James Laxton said. “We are in the process of expanding our range and to do so, require additional space.”
