16 Worsted is named for the mircon count of the fiber. The lower the micron count, the finer the fiber. Most commercial merino wool fibers range between 18 to 24 microns. The micron count of 16 in is very fine and gives this merino yarn the hand of cashmere. It glides effortlessly off of the needles and feels so luxurious next to skin.
