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 merino 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 merino 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 merino wool socks 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, Australia.
Our factory and shop have been a fixture in Crookwell for over 20 years, and while we’re growing our business and selling globally online, Crookwell is and will remain our home. We love being a part of our community; we appreciate the connectedness, the support we receive, and the pace of life here.
We’re committed to giving back to the community, whether that’s shopping locally, volunteering with the Rural Fire Service and Landcare, donating to local grass-roots causes, or supporting local events; they’re all part of the fabric of rural life.
Our family sock making heritage goes back several hundred years, and we’re proud to continue that tradition, making high quality artisan socks on traditional sock knitting machines and hand finishing them here in our small factory.

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.

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,
