Nickel free strings?

Hi all! Ok, I don't know if this exists, or if I am just weird, but does anyone know of nickel free strings? I have strong nickel allergy and I try to avoid all nickel (I have to buy my belts at nickelfreebelts.com, I have to buy my pants from Levi's, I even have to eat low nickel foods, etc). Is there anyone that sells nickel free strings?

D'addario Steel strings for example.

Unsure if they are 100% nickel free, but they are mostly steel atleast and sound quite different from nickel wounds. They should be available in any well stocked guitar shop.

I bet the coating on Elixirs would keep the nickel off of your fingers, might want to give those a try. Otherwise, try the Ernie Ball and D'Addario stainless steel strings.

Not sure if cobalt has same chemical properties as nickel, but there ya go since they weren't mentioned before.
