Laxey Woollen Mills is a family-owned business and is proud to be the last working woollen mill on the Isle of Man. The Wood family took over the business in the 1950s and it has remained a family concern ever since. Robert Wood was a highly skilled woollen weaver and designer from Galashiels who reintroduced hand looms to Laxey. He and his wife Sally steered the business through the hectic Sixties when the coach trip reigned 'king' of the tourist industry. To this day, the Mill is still adapting to new challenges under the guidance of the next generation and it is forming itself into an exciting Craft Centre with major renovations being undertaken to its outbuildings.

Managing Director, John Wood is walking in his father's footsteps by continuing to weave using traditional methods at the Mill. John served a five year apprenticeship under his father, and has been a professional weaver since the age of 16. He is the only commercial pattern weaver on the Isle of Man and specialises in producing rugs and scarves in a vast array of designs and qualities, including, of course, the famous Laxey Manx tartan. John's love of working with colours and yarns is particularly evident in his one-off, limited edition designs.
