Thanks for the feedback.
I once bought some Shinano when I first started knitting, but long story short, it was rougher than I expected and because it had negative connotations associated with it from the bad purchase experience, I sold it before seeing if it got softer after washing.
I do have some Cash Iroha which feels fairly soft as is and some Kabuto which is gorgeous, but feels stiff. I'm hoping that it'll soften up after washing.
I just really am attracted to the Silk Garden colorways more than Kureyon. I like the looong color repeats I think.
