Ariosa is a light and airy blend of extrafine merino and cashmere. Extrafine merino has a low micron count. A fiber‰۪s softness is determined by its diameter‰ܓthe smaller the diameter‰ܓmicron count‰ܓthe softer it is against the skin. Extra fine merino also has a long staple, a feature that adds luster and allows Ariosa‰۪s relaxed twist to resist pilling. While garments knit in chunky-weight Ariosa will keep you warm, they‰۪re light and lofty to wear.
Even with its loose twist, Ariosa has great stitch definition. Ariosa is available in a beautiful palette of colors that ranges from lovely neutrals to vibrant brights.
