Brown Sheep Cotton Fine vs Knitpicks Palette?

It appears these two are very similar in weight, and I'm considering substituting Palette for the Cotton Fine:

BS Cotton Fine is 222 yard/50gr, fingering weight, wool/cotton blend
Knitpicks Palette is 231 Yards/50gr, fingering weight, 100% wool

Has anyone used either or substituted either way? The BS is slightly more expensive, though I've found it online for $2.99 a skein on closeout (meaning I might not get all the colors I want.) The Palette is only $1.79 a skein, hence the substitution.

Pros/cons of either?

I'm thinking of knitting a few pairs of the mismatched Fair Isle socks from the new Interweave Knits: http://tinyurl.com/f9smn
