Thick Full Cushioned
Our Thick Full-Cushioned style of socks is by far our most popular. These are the style affectionately known to local farmers and tradies as “concrete socks”, as these cushioned socks allow workers to stand comfortably all day on cold, hard concrete without their feet getting sore, cold or tired.
Knitted on our Bentley Komet machines, these socks are constructed using two to four threads of wool or cotton yarn depending on the yarn thickness or ply, with one thread of nylon for reinforcement and stretch. The outside of the sock is a tidy plain knit, while on the inside the threads are pulled by terry jacks during knitting to form a loop between every stitch (like the surface of a towel) giving them a springy feel and extra air pockets for insulation.
Warm, soft, springy, thick socks like these are brilliant for so many uses.
Many customers love our Hand-Dyed socks in this style for fun, cosy bed socks either for themselves or as a great gift.
As a work boot sock, you can’t beat this style for comfort and durability in summer or winter, especially in our Classic 22.5 Micron range. If you’re a skier or a hiker and your boots have the room to fit them, Thick Full-Cushioned socks will keep you comfy all day and keep the blisters at bay. From personal experience, I once walked 14km cross-country, including several creek and river crossings, wearing traditional gumboots and a pair of these socks and by the end of the hike the socks were wet, but my feet were warm, felt dry, and had no sign of blisters. Hopefully we’ll get some impartial testimonials to similar effect to back this up soon so everyone will believe this is not a biased tale!
Knee-High Thick Full-Cushioned
Constructed in the same way as our Thick Full-Cushioned socks, this Knee-High style extends up over the calf and up to just below the knee. This is how we stay warm in a Crookwell winter. These have long been popular with motorcyclists and skiers.
Medium Thickness Ribbed
This style has the same number of threads of wool or cotton and nylon as the Thick Full-Cushioned socks. The sole of this sock is a smooth plain stocking stitch knit inside and out, and the upper foot and leg is a one to one rib. Medium Thickness Ribbed socks design allows a high proportion of natural fibre to synthetic and a substantial feel without the bulk of the Thick Full-Cushioned style, meaning you can have some warmth and springiness inside tighter-fitting shoes. Of all the styles we make, the Loose-Top Medium Thickness Ribbed sock has the most stretch and give around the ankle and leg; good to know if you’re looking for the best circulation socks.
Classic Fine Knit Socks
Our two German Esta machines knit our Fine Knit socks with one thread of wool or cotton and one nylon thread using fine gauge needles resulting in thin and comfortable socks to be worn with dress shoes and boots. The sole of the foot has an even, plain stocking stitch knit, with a fine one to one rib on the upper foot, leg and cuff.
Lindner’s Cotton Ankle Socks have a smooth plain knit outside with terry knit cushioning throughout on the inside and a one to one rib band around the ankle. With a well-rounded heel, these socks will stay where they should on your foot, and by making ankle cuff slightly higher than in other ankle sock styles we ensure that the back of your ankles won’t rub on your shoe as you exercise.
