Lindner Quality Socks
Comfortable - Long lasting - Hand finished
Socks: we wear them every day but often don't think about them unless there's a hole, or they bunch up, or we lose one in the wash.
But a sock is not just a sock, a well made sock is a marvel of functional design. They stop our feet getting blisters, they cushion our feet for comfort, they draw (wick) sweat away from the skin, and more often than not, look great as well.
Excellence in workmanship for the finest socks
As cheap mass produced socks have become almost the only type we can buy, the qualities of a fine sock have been forgotten.
But it doesn't have to be that way, Lindner Quality Socks are proud to make fine products using traditional techniques and finishing by hand. We make socks that last, that won't strangle your legs, that will keep you warm and comfortable in winter and cool and comfortable in summer.
The Lindner Quality Socks story started in the 1920s in Germany and we are still a family owned business with a passion for quality. We know about our socks, we make them using traditional knitting machines and hand finish them in our factory behind our shop in Crookwell, NSW.
To keep you warm from head to toe this winter, check out the new Merino Beanies.Knitted in Adelaide, South Australia from our local Southern Tablelands fine merino sock yarn, these beanies are super snug and comfortable.
Crookwell Potato Festival
Who doesn’t like a good spud? On the 11th of May we’re celebrating the humble spud at the Crookwell Potato Festival, and Crookwell's reputation as major suppliers of top-quality, clean seed potatoes. Our region has a long and rich heritage of innovation in the potato growing industry, and our spuds are second to none.
In 2019, the 9th Annual Crookwell Potato Festival will hold a distinctively Irish flavour. There will be cooking demonstrations, eco-farm tours, live music, kids' activities, vintage cars, markets and much more.
PS. we've been so busy with our packaging rebranding and website makeover that we won't have a stall at this years potato festival, but our shop and factory will be open if you’re stocking up on socks or curious to know how our socks are made.
Kingston Old Bus Depot Market - Celebration of Wool Weekend
18th and 19th May, 2019
It’s certainly a busy time of year in this part of Australia. The Kingston Old Bus Depot Markets are an ACT institution, and the annual Celebration of Wool has grown enormously over the years to become one of the biggest events on their calendar. So much so that in recent years it has expanded to a two day event, with makers' workshops drawing visitors from near and far.
There is so much to see and do for wool-lovers, knitters, weavers, artists and wearers. Kingston always features some incredible food offerings, too. There is something for everyone in a beautiful setting on the foreshores of Lake Burley-Griffin.
We have a stall at the Kingston Old Bus Depot Market if you would like to drop in and say hello.
Where it all began - the original Lindner Socks factoryWe've returned from our journey of discovery back to where Lindner Socks began.
During our time in Germany we learned so much about our heritage, and we've come back to Oz full of inspiration and passion to take this old trade into an exciting new future.
Stay tuned for more....
Thank you everyone who visited us at the Canberra and Bowral markets in 2018, your support is very much appreciated.
We'll be back at both markets this year. We're currently working out our schedule and will post them here as well as advising everyone in a newsletter.
If you haven't subscribed to our newsletter yet, you'll find a simple subscription tool in the footer of every page on this website.
We look forward to seeing you at one of our markets soon.
All day comfort - you owe it to your feet
Using top grade fibres, primarily wool and cotton, we make socks that are comfortable and durable. The well formed heels will ensure a snug and secure fit all the time, and our loose top products are perfect if elastic tops aren't suitable for you.
Our socks are great value and will last for years, compared to cheap mass produced products that might only last a few months.
Our range covers all sorts of use, for work, hiking, dress, and for some fun and flair our hand dyed rainbow socks will light up any room. (If you have a washing machine with an appetite for socks, we can even knit you a single one! )
Find your Perfect Product - Fibres, What's the Difference?At Lindner Socks we knit a variety of sock styles in different yarns, with a focus on natural fibres. Not sure what to choose? To help you find the pair of socks that’s right for you, we’ve compiled some notes on how we make socks, the benefits of different fibres such as "medium" merino wool, "fine"merino wool, cotton and alpaca, as well as explaining the need for a little synthetic.

"Thank you once again for your exceptionally quick service and hand-written note. Wow!
I'd be very happy for you to use my feedback as you wish, because I mean every word of it.??
I've worn Lindner socks in Japan's winter and Canberra's. They're wonderful! Warm and exceptionally comfy with their cushioning. Perfect gift for friends and visitors –
Australian-made and of such consistent high quality they can't fail to be well received.
And now I've discovered Lindner's cotton socks are also the best cooler sock I've ever bought. Can't say a single negative about this family business and their products.
With best regards to everyone in your business,
