Axminster Carpets are the only UK carpet manufacturter to buy the wool in fleeces and handle all aspects of the carpet production "in house". Axminster Carpets undertake all stages of carpet yarn production, from the scouring of the greasy wool through to carding, spinning and dyeing. Axminster Carpets can truly justify and be proud of their unique claim "from fleece to floor" .
All Axminster carpetrs are made with "homespun yarn" from their own spinning and dyeing mill at Buckfast on the edge of Dartmoor.
Axminster Carpets use 95% British wool in their yarns which gives the carpet a greater durability and better look retention.
