Undercover Otter


In 2011 Petra Sielias had to finish their bachelor thesis in creative entrepreneurship. As you can imagine, that was the perfect time to pick up a new hobby! They got some crochet hooks and knitting needles out and learned how to use those tools. Not long after that Petra started hand dyeing yarn. Undercover Otter yarns are characterized by bright saturated colors and strange names. “When dyeing, we experiment with different methods to get the effect we want a colorway to have. That means that the resulting colorways can have up to 6 layers of dye, in a multitude of techniques.” Undercover Otter, based in Amsterdam, is available through the website and through shops in the US, UK and EU.
