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.
There's nothing quite like a dazzling pair of socks to brighten up the day, we have made some fabulous new hand dyed colours.Just in time for Christmas, these local merino socks might just be the perfect gift!
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.

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.

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!
