Silk and steel strings

I discovered these on a nice little Guild M120 yesterday. I’d picked up the guitar to try it out and loved how mellow and easy to play it felt, the tension seemed nice and low but I could still dig in - it almost felt like all the good elements of a classical/nylon strung, but on something I could actually play. Anyway, I had a chat with the salesman and he mentioned that it was fitted with silk and steel strings too, which vaguely registered in my mind but suddenly all the characteristics made sense.

Is anyone else a fan of these? They seem ideal for finger-picking & couch/home-strumming if you don’t like things too bright. I’m going to try some out on my Yamaha too, as it’s got a bellied top and I’ve been reluctant to string it with anything too heavy!
