What's the deal with these strings?

    Much as I'm tempted, no Seinfeldian shtick about the strings...

    Anyway, all the BTB's I've played have weird strings. The wrap on the strings (the actual string) alternates silver and blue. Like two wraps on it. It's weird looking. What is the blue part of the wrap (material?) and why does the BTB's have these strings? Special? Or just looks? And who makes them?
