As a natural wonder material, wool is the unrivalled sustainable fibre of choice for flooring. To demonstrate the green credentials and creative possibilities of wool to the flooring industry, Lawton Yarns will be exhibiting as part of the Spin Group at Domotex 2018 on Stand A59, Hall 11.

Exploring the theme of ‘nature hanging by a thread’ at the show, as a core brand of the Spin Group, we’ll be discussing why sustainable production should be a top priority across the floor covering yarn industry and demonstrating how sustainability is at the heart of our current and future operations.

As the largest woollen yarn spinner in the world with a strong heritage of over 115 years in woollen yarn spinning, we’re excited to showcase the natural benefits of wool at Domotex 2018. Its elasticity makes it remarkably resilient and hardwearing and wool is also naturally flame retardant and stain resistant – both major advantages for commercial and residential flooring.

Stunning, durable carpets start with beautiful and hard-wearing yarns, and the we aim to create inspirational fibres that can also withstand the intense maintenance demands of both the commercial and residential world. Flooring is now being used as a key expression of interior trends and going into 2018, we’ll be seeing much more of the use of rugs as artwork and chunky, textured fabrics to bring design inspiration to life in customised interiors. To keep up with the latest trends, we are continuously looking to develop new, high quality yarns and as a result have gained a strong reputation for beautiful wool products. Some of our latest advances in woollen yarn technology include woollen periloc-felted yarns, woollen chem-set yarns as well as bespoke Alpaca soft-touch natural yarns.

Michiel Smits, CEO of the Spin Group, commented: “Backed by a strong heritage in this traditional sector, we are firmly focused on the future and continuing to strengthen our offering by continually investing in modern technology and new processes to create high quality, sustainable yarns.”

 “We put our customers at the heart of everything we do and collaborate to deliver yarns that help them achieve their strategic, environmental and creative objectives. We’re looking forward to meeting colleagues and customers from across the industry at Domotex to explore how our range of synthetic and natural yarns can help flooring manufacturers and designers bring their creative vision to life.”
