What is "aran" weight wool?

There's a custom skein slot with Stitches that I'd like to get, but I have no idea about the weights of wool...any wool experts out there?

Aran is thicker than "regular" worsted weight wool. It's almost a bulky but not quite. IME, very thick, great for overnight.

ETA--I used BFL worsted on your shorties. They'll be fine for day or night
