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 storystarted 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.
New colours in the ultimate cold weather socks
What better way to brighten up the cool days of winter with some bright colours in the warmest socks you can imagine?
These socks use 46% 18.5 to 19 micron merino wool and 29% Alpaca fibre, with silk and nylon to provide strength. They are supremely comfortable and highly adaptable; commonly worn with work boots, they're also great as house socks and even bed socks.
We’re committed to sourcing wool and yarns from local suppliers. The wool for these socks is sourced from the Crookwell to Boorowa area of Southern Tablelands and the alpaca yarn is sourced from the Southern NSW region.

Take me to the socks
Thank you to all the people that came to see us in Canberra and Bowral.

Kingston Bus Depot markets in Canberra will be Sunday the 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th of August. Also the 2nd of September, and don't forget Father's Day
Planning a visit to Crookwell? Please keep in mind that there will be no running sock machines to view from August 11 to the 10th of September, due to our family history trip back to Germany.
The shop will still be open as normal, and you can still see the machines, please be patient with our staff as we may run out of some stock or not be across all areas at one time.

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.

We love to hear about the places our socks have travelled to, and what you think about your Lindner Socks. Just send us an e-mail with your thoughts and we'll add it to our testimonial page:
"I don't know how you guys stay in business.
Nine years ago, while travelling, I bought a pair of the thick wool/nylon socks at a market.
Since then they've seen a weekly average of 5 - 10 hours of manual & landscaping work in my hard steel-capped boots. Logic says they must have thinned a little since then, but I really can't see it.
Just tracked you down now so I could make this comment!
