Replaced by a 100% Merino version in Fall 2011.

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—the smaller the diameter—micron count—the 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.
