Danspin, Danish yarn manufacturing company acquired UK Lawton Yarns in June 2019. Dewsbury-based Lawton Yarns has been operating for more than a century and supplies more than 50 carpet manufacturers in the UK, Europe and other international locations.

‘We see this merger as a positive step to continue to support our reliable partners with competitive quality yarn, developments and optimal logistic solutions’, says Lars Pedersen of Danspin. ‘This step is made to generate critical mass to run 2 efficient spinning mills with focus on quality, service, and reliable partnership. We see this as an important and necessary step for the industry to secure and help grow the interest of wool carpet. We will continue to invest in developments and efficiency improvements to consolidate our business’.

The acquisition is expected to protect Lawton Yarn’s natural wool products from competing synthetic products. Danspin and Lawton Yarns will continue to run as separate companies.

Danspin has been investing into yarn manufacturing over the years. 15 years ago the company shifted its yarn and dyeing production to Lithuania. This factory processes 8 million kilos of yarn per year. 6 million of this is woollen yarn and a further 2 million is blends. The company predominantly uses New Zealand wool for higher end carpets and is a brand partner with Bloch & Behrens New Zealand. It exports its yarn within Europe, and to USA, and Asia.
