    You're describing Silk & Steel strings. I believe both Martin and D'addario have them. They're not coated, but I don't know of any coated string that would be considered "soft". Martin has another line of "flexible core" strings also designed for easier fingering:

    I put Martin S&S strings on my Taylor GS Mini a few weeks ago. I bought this guitar new just after Christmas. It had 13s originally but I found them too stiff, the Martins are 11.5s. I recommend the Martins. Here in New Zealand they cost about $20, which would be about 15 in the US
