Real light gauge silk and steel strings

Would these be of interest at:

Ernie Ball Twelve String Acoustic Guitar - Earthwood Silk & Steel 12 String Soft, .009 - .046

It includes a .020 silk and steel which is hard to find a wound string that small.

    Those might be a little light ... The goal is to get somewhere between 18-25lbs downforce on the bridge and typically that works out to be 10-45 to 11-47 strings. Some people do use S&S though. It gives a very soft mellow sound - like Argentines that are just about dead but have that nice boxy thud for that last little while. S&S sound like that very quickly and stay like that for a pretty long time.
    You get one chance to enjoy this day, but if you're doing it right, that's enough.
