Is this the yarn of the moment or what?  Their are so many FO's made out of this stuff.   Is it really that great?  And why?  I am so curious.

I LOVE this yarn. It's really soft and the colorways are absolutely beautiful. It's kinda similar to Kureyon but it's a million times softer, and it's less expensive. Plus there's no sticks and hay to pull out of SWS that I find in almost every ball of kureyon.

pretty much what jax3303 said, and i feel it comes in better colors than kureyon too.

It is very soft, with a nice sheen, and the colors are lovely.  Having said that, I don't really care for it because it's too easy to split and it's kind of hairy.  Of course, I don't like Kureyon either (although I do like this better) because they're both hard on my hands.

I like it alot. It's not the best yarn I've ever used, but it is really nice, especially for the price, and the colorways are beautiful! It knits up very nice, and while I don't know that the colorways are BETTER than Noro, I'd say they are equally nice, and the stuff is much softer than Kuryeon, and also softer than Silk Garden. It does get fuzzy, but it's too bad, imo. I've made two hats with it thus far, and am going to make a matching scarf soon. I'll definitely use it lots more!!
