Ooo! It looks nice. I haven't used Zara myself, but I have seen it at my LYS. It looks like a nice round yarn, which gives it great stitch definition for intricate stitch patterns and especially cables - as we can see on the model's sweater! Lovely! Plus DK weight yarn is a good all-around size - it's not too heavy that it weighs you down and burns you up, but not so fine a gauge that it takes forever to knit a sweater ;)

One of my friends is addicted to super fine-gauge knitting... she makes DRESSES in lace and fingering weight...agh!
