Lindner Quality Socks
Comfortable - Long lasting - Hand finished
COVID-19 Update for Lindner Socks customers
People have always been at the heart of what we do. We feel a very powerful sense of responsibility to you, our customers, our team members, family, suppliers & local community. We’ll all be facing a difficult time over the coming months as the crisis unfolds.
You can be assured that we’re taking special care to follow the requirements for disinfecting our factory and shop, ensuring we meet minimum personal space requirements and making sure we follow hand washing instructions.
Our retail shop will be closed, but we’re still here for you online.
We’ll continue production, and online deliveries will be our focus. We’ve also taken additional measures when handling the socks and especially packing, with staff ensuring hands are thoroughly washed with soap & water and minimising physical contact with the products.
If you would like to know more about our response to the COVID-19 pandemic, you can read our detailed blog here.
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 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, 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.

Lindner Socks Re-Brand is Ready to Launch!Our much-anticipated new look is ready to roll out with the arrival of our new packaging hot off the press.
More than eighteen months of work has gone into the re-brand of Lindner Quality Socks. We're passionate about the quality of the socks, apparel and service that we provide to you, and equally passionate about our values as we focus on natural fibres, heritage and craftsmanship, and environment and sustainability.
We’re so excited to embark on this new chapter of the Lindner story with you. Over the last thirty years in Australia our customers have grown to know and trust Lindner Quality Socks, and we plan to be around for a long time yet.
We put our family name to our brand because we wear our name with pride in what we do both personally and professionally. For the full story, from new logos and packaging, to the new additions to our apparel range, to our new compostable shipping satchels, click here.
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,
Fran Nolan , Kambah, ACT - 11/2017"
