PolarKnit Fleece Yarn

PolarKnit is the first authentic fleece yarn for knitting and crochet. The yarn is soft and cozy, knits up fast, dries quickly, and is super warm. Made with the great outdoors in mind, the yarn provides 4 times the wind resistance of traditional fleece. Its amazing comfort will keep you happy during a walk in the park or a day on the slopes. PolarKnit is now available in three weights, Worsted, Chunky and Mega.

Worsted Fleece Yarn Chunky Fleece Yarn Mega Fleece Yarn

Show your love for your favorite craft with PolarKnit YarnDots and KeyDots. YarnDots are adornments for your knitwear. They have a cute design on front and a back that you work through chunky knitted or crocheted fabric. The concept is the same as the little rubber pegs we put on Crocs shoes. (And these will fit on Crocs too!) KeyDots Key Covers help keep track of your keys with colorful craft-related images.

Yarn Dots
Key Dots

StitchDots "talk" to knitters and crocheters with words and symbols on each marker. Use the "Start" to identify the beginning of a row and  "End" to do the opposite. Use the RS and WS markers to point out the Right Side and Wrong Side or your project and Inc and Dec markers to denote when its time to Increase and Decrease. Other helpful markers include letters A, B, C, D, E and F. Each StitchDots package includes 20 markers in a cool retro carrying pouch.
