The is an option to pin an opam switch to a specific directory. However, I cannot find it anymore.
Does anyone know what I'm looking for?

Oh I might remember! I think you're looking for opam switch link:

$ opam switch --help
...
       link SWITCH [DIR]
           Sets a local alias for a given switch, so that the switch gets
           automatically selected whenever in that directory or a descendant.

It also works to create the link by hand: ln -s ~/.opam/xyz _opam
