Frequently Asked Questions

How long will my socks last? 
Unlike synthetic, mass produced socks, which wear out quickly and lose their shape, Lindner Socks are made by our tenth-generation sock maker, Andrew Lindner, using high-quality natural fibres on traditional, vintage machines before they are individually hand-finished and quality checked. 
This commitment to quality and craftsmanship ensures Linder Socks last for years, if properly cared for. For more information on what makes Lindner Socks long-lasting, please see Caring For Your Socks and Apparel. You may also wish to view our YouTube Channel:
Are the socks itchy?
No. Itchy socks can often be attributed to the fibres used. Starting from the farm, the selection and processing of natural fibres has a huge impact on your feet and the longevity of your socks.  Fibres that are not too fine, but that combine strength and comfort are the best for socks.
At Lindner Socks, we look for a fibre diameter that is strong enough to produce hard wearing socks, yet soft enough that it doesn’t cause itchiness or discomfort. For more information about what goes into our socks, please see Sock Construction.
How thick are your socks? 
Our socks come in a range of thickness and styles, including: Thick, Full CushionedKnee-High Thick Full-CushionedMedium Thickness Ribbed, Fine Knit and Ankle Socks in both Ribbed Merino Wool and Cotton.
For help choosing the correct sock style for you, please see Selecting Your Style.
Do you make kids socks? 
While our Extra Small (XS) sized socks start at a children’s size 13, we do not currently make kids socks. However, work on a kids’ range is underway – so stay tuned!
To be the first to know when our kids range becomes available, and stay up to date with all our latest news, offers, and events, you can sign up to our newsletter (you can subscribe using the field at the bottom of the page) or follow us on Instagram or Facebook.
Do you make pure merino wool socks?
While our 'Stringybark' 100% pure Millpost Merino Wool socks are currently out of stock, our Merino + Hemp 'Echidna' and 'Wombat' socks are a good alternative. They contain Australian merino wool, with a small percentage of hemp added for strength and durability.
In our Heritage and Tablelands Collections, we add a little nylon to the natural fibres used to allow for greater durability. Nylon can significantly prolong the life of a pair of socks, which means you need to replace your socks less often – a win for your wallet and the environment.
In our Luxury Collection, silk is added to the merino wool and alpaca fibres for strength, resulting in exceptional comfort and warmth.
