merino wool in terms of yardage and weight, but it isnt superwash.
but the price is MUCH less expensive....

I am no yarn expert, but $19 for 100 gram is a lot of money...

well it seems pretty comparable to many of the sock yarns i have seen at the LYS. it is enough for one pair. I don't think it is a bad deal but not really a good one either....pretty average i think though, of course, you can get cheaper sock yarns too.
