It all began with the importing of an Antique Gearheart Circular Sock Machine Circa 1904, brought back to working life from its previous American Museum home. The Odd Sockery was born as a partnership between friends Janine Wilson and Leanne Wills. We have both worked with, and been lovers of fibre since our childhoods. And now with our circular sock machine we are creating socks.
These socks have a story to tell. With a significant historical connection to Textile manufacturing in our town. Clunes Interknit Woollen Mills operated in Clunes from 1939 until 1985 and was reknown for the manufacturing of socks during the war years and beyond.
The Odd Sockery have now revived this part of our local history together with that same Interknit Factory, who are now located in Ballarat.
