Aran is a tad heavier than worsted.
If your budget can stand it, you might look into something silk-blended or something like Knitpicks Comfy, which is cotton with 25% acrylic. If the pattern can stand DK weight (which might be better for spring anyhow) you could look into cotton/linen blend. Another thing to remember is that cotton doesn't always hold very deep or bright colors well, so you might want prints or pastels.
