In 2011 Petra had to finish her college thesis. As you can imagine, that was the perfect moment to pick up a new hobby! So she got some crochet hooks and knitting needles out and with the help of YouTube and her mother, she taught herself how to use those tools. Not long after that she started hand dyeing yarn. Initially for herself and as her skills improved and methods got more refined she started to get custom orders. Since her motto is ' do it right or not at all', she took the plunge and started her own business dyeing and blending yarn and fibers.



Petra started Undercover Otter in 2013 and does about 80% of all the work that goes into the products, website, admin and order packing.
