It’s finally here! The 2023 Queerdo Collection!
The Undercover Otter / Wee Yarn Company crossover no one asked for, but you’re getting anyway. 😉
Undercover Otter and The Wee Yarn Company have joined forces for the 2023 Pride Collection and we’ve created six exclusive colorways in support of the LGBTQIA+ community, available on two delicious yarn bases.
This collaboration aims to spread love, acceptance, and awareness for the community while also giving back. For every skein sold (at a retail price of €25,- incl. VAT), we are donating €2,50 to LGBT+ Asylum Support. A Dutch non-governmental organization (NGO) founded in 2015 that provides guidance and support to LGBT+ asylum seekers in the Netherlands.
Ross and I have been having a blast making vibrant colorways that celebrate Queer Joy and if I may say so myself, we’ve succeeded in creating stunning colorways that represent the vibrancy and diversity of the LGBTQIA+ community. Each skein of yarn will be carefully dyed by hand, creating unique and one-of-a-kind color variations that are sure to inspire creativity and spark joy in every crafter who uses them.
But this collaboration means so much more than just creating beautiful yarn. It’s about standing in solidarity with the LGBTQIA+ community and using our platform to support and uplift their voices. As solo-preneurs, we firmly believe in the importance of human rights and inclusivity, and we are committed to doing our part to create a more accepting and loving world.
We also have a little gift for everyone who orders four skeins (or more) from this collection in the shape of an amazing shawl pattern designed by @pufidoknits using our Queerdo Collection colorways. Yiğitcan is a knitwear designer based in Istanbul and currently pursuing their masters degree in Textile and Design. We’ve had some sneak previews of the design and I can tell you it’s going to be amazing!
So, whether you’re an avid knitter or just looking for a way to show your support for the LGBTQIA+ community, we invite you to join us in this exciting collaboration. By purchasing one of our exclusive hand-dyed yarn colorways, you can make a difference in the lives of those who need it most. Let’s spread love, acceptance, and inclusivity one skein at a time!
