Humphrey Law & Co. have been manufacturing socks at our factory in Heathmont, Melbourne for over 70 years. The company was founded back in 1947 by Sidney Humphrey and Albert Law. Albert Law’s children, Rob and Elizabeth now manage the business. We manufacture socks made from Australian wool, cotton, Peruvian-sourced alpaca, and bamboo-rayon. We have socks for every type of foot.

We are accredited by Ethical Clothing Australia and we take great pride in that our production is transparent, ethical and legally compliant by ensuring our workers are paid under, and protected by Australian industrial legislation.

Environmental sustainability is very important to us. We have just released our Sun Sock following the installation of 357 solar panels on our factory roof. Those panels generate half our electricity requirements so every second sock is knitted using solar power! The Sun Sock is a comfortable ankle sock with a mini cuff made with breathable and absorbent space dyed mercerised cotton yarn, and because the colours are distributed randomly on the yarn itself, every Sun Sock is unique. So each sock in a pair of Sun Socks is not exactly the same as the other!

Our socks are sold within David Jones and Myer stores nationwide, independent retailers and other various channels. Both Myer and David Jones have been selling our socks since the early 1960’s. You will also find our socks abroad in many countries such as New Zealand, Japan, Korea and the USA.

Humphrey Law holds the contract to supply the Australian Defence Forces with their combat socks. This has been a successful partnership since 2013 and they are very happy with our supply and made for purpose sock that we manufacture for them based on the rigorous Defence testing and evaluation requirements.

In order to make a lightweight business sock with fine merino and provide the softness, abrasion resistance and anti-pilling required for a quality sock, it is necessary to use very high specification wool. Our wool is obtained from selected bales grown in the Boorowa region of NSW. It is 19 micron fleece wool and selected for its high strength and long fibre length. This of course is the “top shelf” of the woolclip and is priced accordingly however it is the only way to make a quality fine merino sock.
