Merino Ribbed Socks

$29.50

High quality Australian merino wool socks, made in Australia using traditional techniques and finished by hand.

These medium weight ribbed socks are made from merino wool 18.5 to 19 microns, comprising 80% wool for warmth and 20% nylon for durability.

Made using 84 larger needles, the leg and upper foot part of the sock consist of ribbed knitting, about 2.5mm thick, with plain, smooth knit on the sole of the foot of about 1.5mm thickness. Super comfortable and versatile, these socks can be worn with a variety of shoes while the ribbed style ventilates your feet. 

Socks weigh approximately 115 grams, available in blue/black, cream or cream/grey.

The Lindner Sock Story

The Lindner family has been proudly making socks since 1921. From humble beginnings in Germany in the 1920s, they moved to the sheep growing district of Goulburn, NSW in 1987. Their socks quickly became popular with locals – especially tradies working through cold winters, who nicknamed their thick full-cushioned socks “concrete socks” because they could comfortably stand all day on cold, hard concrete wearing their Lindner socks.

 Now located in Crookwell, NSW, surrounded by many great wool breeders, the Lindner’s pursue their passion for creating the best quality socks from some of the best merino in the world.
