Celebrated for its super-warm and lightweight properties, Qiviut is the downy-soft underwool from the Arctic musk ox and is one of the finest natural fibers known to man. Because of its rarity, you can expect to shell out around $70 per ounce for 220 yards. Ouch! That pretty much prices it out of most people’s budget.

Step aside Qiviut, there is a new fiber in town! PolarKnit™ was recently launched at The National Needlearts Association Conference. This plush fleece yarn is designed to keep you cozy and warm on the coldest of days. Made from Polartec's® Wind Pro® fleece, it provides incredible comfort for infants to seniors, and its durability and tight-knit construction will last through wash after wash in the machine and the accompanying dryer rides. It will retail around nine bucks, and two balls will make you the warmest hat you have every owned. Check out the PolarKnit website for more info and to scope out their awesome free patterns for hats, scarves, mittens and even pillows!
