The Lindner Sock story began in Thalheim, near Chemnitz, Germany. The hosiery industry had been a major part of the town’s growth and economy from as early as 1730, and it was here that Max Lindner, with his wife Meta, founded the “H. Max Lindner Strumpf Fabrik” in 1921. (From Our Story on the Lindner website.)
Generations of family sock makers later and the Lindner family owned and run sock and other wool apparel manufacturing business is located in the Southern Tablelands of NSW at the bustling wool town of Crookwell. Andrew Lindner is the latest in a long line of managers of a great expanding business utilising local fine-count merino wool to make a product that I find the warmest, most comfortable and durable sock I have ever worn.
From time to time I order socks for myself and friends as special gifts as they happily do mail order. I noticed that they recently brached out into beanies, so I got one for my wife. It’s a cream, 18.5-micron fine local merino wool product that is beautifully warm, light and has no scratchiness at all. It also comes in a multitude of colours catering for most tastes.
Their socks are not cheap, but they are not expensive, when you consider their quality materials, durability and local manufacture from Australian wool. Have a look at their website www.lindnersocks.com.au or call them on 02 4832 0202 and you will get great service from nice people.
