This is such a fun colorway but one with some meaning too. I dyed half of It's Complicated a a dark gray with streaks of black. I left the other half white but added a multitude of different colored speckles.
The idea for this colorway came after taking the time to scroll through my Facebook feed and seeing so many different perspectives about the current situation in the world. There are a few things that are truly "black and white" in this world, but very few indeed. I have found over the years that most things are a little more complicated, and the world would be a better place if we would take the time to listen to different people's perspectives. That's what this colorway is all about.
It's also going to be so much fun to knit or crochet or weave with! Depending on your pattern, you'll get thin stripes of black followed by thin stripes of white with all the speckles.
I dyed this yarn on my Sparkly Merino Sock base, which is made of 92% superwash merino and 8% sparkly lurex. It's a lovely base for shawls and cowls and hats.

It's Complicated would look great with Party Like It's 2021, Javert, and Complications.
I included a couple photos of a hat I knit using It's Complicated on Wonderful Worsted to give you an idea of how it will work up. It will vary depending on your pattern.
