our socks and service
Thanks so much! I absolutely love my Lindner socks - my favourites are the Merino Thick Full Cushioned, which I wear with boots out and about all winter long, and the Merino Alpaca Thick Full Cushioned Loose Tops, which make the most luxurious bed socks in the world. I’ve been wearing my three pairs consistently for a year, and there are no signs of wear or thinning. The other wonderful thing is that they NEVER smell - I can wear them for two weeks straight, no problem - I only wash them because the soles get dirty, not because they’re smelly! I love being able to wear a product from a small family-owned company with such a wonderful history, and I appreciate the sustainable production methods, locally sourced wool, and attention to detail. Now, any time I need a present for a loved one, I buy them Lindner socks! I’ll never buy mass-produced socks again. Thank you for continuing the sock-making tradition!
You’re more than welcome to use my feedback on your site - it’s very well deserved! 6/7/2018
For the past five or six years my son has requested the purchase of 3 pairs of Lindner socks (Classic Thick Full Cushioned Wool) for his birthday. He has worked in some of the hotter parts of Australia in mines and ports. He thinks they are ideal for all weather conditions and very comfortable with his heavy work boots.
Thank you Lindner for solving the ‘birthday gift’ dilemma. 29/01/2018
Hi Lindner Quality Socks.
Thanks for the socks! They arrived yesterday.
The whole process was quick and easy - the socks were in the mail within a day of ordering.
We actually discovered your socks years ago.
My grandparents lived in Nowra and we would always stop in Crookwell to stretch our legs when visiting them.
My parents found your shop and started buying socks for us all. Both of my grandparents passed away over six years ago so our trips via Crookwell have been far and few between.
I was so excited to discover that you now have a website! My partner works as a bricklayer so is on his feet and wearing work boots 40+ hours a week. He loves your thick merino socks and says they are the best he has had (and believe me he has tried pretty much every brand) in terms of comfort, keeping his feet cool or warm depending on the season, and also for keeping odours at bay.
Thanks again and keep up the good work!
Also happy for you to use any part of this as feedback for your website if it is helpful.
Looking forward to receiving my socks. This is my third order and I have been extra impressed by the lovely feel and longevity of the loose top fine merino socks.
All pairs are still going strong (they seem to get better with age), I just seem to loose some in the wash! Great product, thankyou

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. Thanks folks!
With best regards to everyone in your business,

Socks arrived yesterday. Great service. I have been wearing your socks since we moved to Crookwell in 2000.
We moved to Canberra 5 years ago. They are the very best, most long wearing socks I have ever had. They last for years.
I have bought other socks supposedly long lasting and tough including possum wool socks which cost a lot more and had a
hole in the heel in 6 weeks. I wear work boots everyday. My Lidner socks don’t ever actually wear out they just get a bit thin.
I wear the same pair of socks for 3 days..they don’t make my feet sweat and they don’t smell. So 2 pairs last me about a week
on rotation and those 2 pairs last me a couple of years. They are absolutely amazing. Thank you so much for providing such a
wonderful product and I will never wear any other socks.
I have given pairs to my daughter who rides everyday and she also loves them and will not wear anything else now.
Happy for you to use this feed back in any way you like.

Thank you for a wonderful product. Feel free to post my review below.
"I recently discovered Lindner socks as I needed warm socks to battle the Canberra cold. After doing my research I decided on merino wool socks and found Lindner Socks, made in Australia and based on quality rather than quantity I ordered my first 3 pairs. I received the socks within days along with a hand written note thanking me for my business, being in sales I appreciated it and it was nice to see a personal touch. The quality of the socks are amazing, the warmth and comfort equally amazing! I loved them so much I ordered another 6 pairs today!
Thank you for a fantastic product.
Happy to provide feedback! Your socks have been keeping my feet warm for about 15 years now.
They are one of the reasons I have survived Canberra for so long! The only downside (for you) is they last so well they pretty
much never wear out - I still have some of the first pairs I ever bought. They're ridiculously comfy and warm. I use them for
bedsocks, inside boots (which is great because boots are in fashion and I get to wear the socks to work!) and for bushwalking.
Pretty much all the time, really!
So I couldn't help sending a pair to someone complaining he was too cold to sleep at night 😊
Please do use the feedback if it helps and thank you for so many years of happy feet.
All the best,
I have finally found a decent sock, no they are better than that they are brilliant they don’t shrink and they wear well,
my last order was 18 mths ago for work socks and they are australian made.
Sure they may cost a little more up front but it’s a good investment in a long lasting comfortable sock.
Thank you for your handwritten note included with the socks. I am so grateful for the advice that I was given when I made my first order recently, and this is my third. For years I have had enormous trouble with socks which would twist in my shoes fitted with orthotics, it was very painful because it caused rubbing and bruising of my feet, no matter how good the support given by the orthotics. The woman who spoke to me on the phone considered my brief, and recommended your medium weight socks, and to try a heavy weight cushioned sole sock.
I have had such comfort since with the socks you recommended, that I have now purchased more pairs, and enjoy the quality and comfort that they provide, after trying many other brands of socks that promised a lot but which did not perform. I am a very satisfied customer, and recommend your socks enthusiastically. I am sorry not to have visited your works yet, it has been my intention for a long time, but will get there soon,

Thanks for your prompt service. It is virtually impossible to buy high quality, light-coloured, thick wool socks in Brisbane. Yours are especially good because they breath and minimise foot problems associated with hot, humid weather. They provide cushioning which is good because my husband works on a concrete floor all day. The light cream colour also looks smarter when he wears shorts in summer.
Feel free to use or paraphrase this feedback. Unfortunately you will not get any directly from my husband, but then you won’t get complaints either J

"I only wear Crookwell socks and no others as they are so warm and comfortable. My family and friends are huge fans too. Its almost impossible to wear them out"
Great to catch up and see you next trip
Kath - Victoria
Your work socks I purchased a while ago have been great. Never looked back.
I will certainly recommend you.
Les - NSW
Thank you so much.
My husband, daughter and I visited your shop in the last school holidays when we stayed in Crookwell.
We bought socks for all 5 of us and absolutely love them!
The socks I ordered yesterday are flying to the Netherlands next week. They’re gifts for my dad, niece and brother in law who – I just know - will really like them too (especially my 11 year old niece who wants to live on an Australian farm when she grows up J).
I’m looking forward to receiving them and I’ll be back for more for sure!
With kind regards,

Hello Lindner Quality Socks
Thanks for this, and I'm looking forward to receiving our socks. I've ordered a few batches of socks before, and was pleased to see that I can now do the ordering online - terrific! The speedy turn-around on my online order is also impressive - can't wait to wear the new colours for the rest of winter. The Lindner socks that we already have are worn daily/weekly, and are still in terrific condition - this new order will replace the non-Lindner socks that have worn out!
Happy for you to use this on the website if that's useful
The new thick work socks made from 19 micron locally grown merino (also available in loose tops) wool are absolute crackers. I bought three pairs from your online service (two for me, one for the Sheriff) they are now the first ones out of the sock drawer in the morning. Worth every cent!

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!
Greg - Berowra, NSW
I received my sock order today and again we are very happy with them. I will certainly be ordering again in the future.

I recently purchased my father, who is diabetic, a pair of your loose top mens wool socks. He was so impressed that mum is now washing them every night. This is a huge compliment to your company as I have lost count of the numbers of socks we have bought him over the years to try.

My two old pair that Mark bought me over a decade ago, while driving through Crookwell are still my very favourite fitting socks.

Can you please advise me when you will next be at the Markets in Kingston ACT? I need to purchase some socks for my husband who suffers with Parkinson's and your socks are the only ones he can get on and off easily.

When we visited your store the last time we were in Australia - we bought a lot of your great socks to take home and everyone loved them. I have tried to find something similar here in Canada but with no luck and I'm now down to my last pair of your great socks and would love more!
Can you ship to Canada? We would be so happy if you can as your socks are the best for fit, comfort and wear.

I was at the Canberra / Kingston markets on Sunday, had an interesting chat with the young man at your stall there (Andrew?) and purchased a pair of your socks. I have washed them and worn them and I am very pleased with my purchase - - I’m sorry now that I didn’t buy a couple of pairs at the reasonable price you charged. However I understand that you do accept “mail” orders, so this communication is really an enquiry about purchasing more socks.
Thanks very much - - looking forward to doing more business with you in the future
