Undercover Otter - Pride 2021

Regular price €20.66


Using their (by now infamous) tie-dye technique and resist dyeing, Jack created these beautiful skeins that represent the Transgender pride flag. 


This colorway is based on the Transgender flag:
The Transgender Flag has been around since 1999 when an American transgender Navy veteran named Monica Helms created it. A year later, the flag made its debut at a Pride parade in Phoenix. Light blue and pink are featured because they’re the traditional colors associated with baby boys and girls, respectively. The white represents those who are intersex, transitioning, or see themselves as having a neutral or undefined gender.

Our 2021 Pride-Month colorways are based on some of the colorful flags that make up the LGBTQI+ rainbow. 

Part of the proceeds from these colorways are donated to Transfuzia, an organization in Europe that supports and educates trans people, allies, and the general public. They are also the organization behind formulating legislation that’s inclusive of trans people. 

Large parts of Europe are still unsafe for LGBTQI+ people and Transfuzia is one of the organizations working on changing that.
