Bi Pride - Platinum Sock

Undercover Otter - Pride 2021

Regular price €20.66


This colorway was dyed using a technique we call 'infusing'. We infuse parts of the yarn with a specific colorway and move on to the next color. That way we keep the specific color we aimed for (in this case for instance the berry purple and blues) without them bleeding into each other too much. The end result is a variegated yarn that holds a lot of individual colors.


This colorway is based on the Bi flag

Florida-based LGBTQ activist Michael Page created the Bisexual Flag in 1998, in order to increase the visibility of bisexual individuals—who are attracted to two genders—in both the LGBTQ community and society as a whole. The pink represents attraction to those of the same gender identity, while the blue stands for attraction to people who identify as a different gender. The purple stripe in the middle symbolizes attraction to two genders.

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.
