Polaris is a very bulky wool, definitely one for super fast knits or beginners. You'll use big needles, or even your arms, to work up this yarn, but the results will be soft and snuggly. If you held Eskimo double stranded you could reach the gauge of Polaris. You won't find a large range of colors, but the ones Polaris does have are beautiful and rich.
