90% extrafine Merino, 10% cashmere
Ariosa is a light and airy blend of extra fine merino and cashmere. Extra fine merino has a low micron count. A fiber’s softness is determined by its diameterthe smaller the diametermicron countthe 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.
Ariosa knits up between 3½ and 4 sts per inch. Even with its loose twist, Ariosa has great stitch definition. Ariosa is available in a palette of 15 colors that ranges from lovely neutrals to vibrant brights.
