Does anyone use purchased slip on finger picks?

I use my bare fingers/thumb, no nails, for both fingerpicking, [multiple notes] and ''flatpicking' [single notes/strums]. The sound is softer and smoother. I use fingerpicks or a plectrum [guitar style  pick] occasionally when I wand loud, but the sound is harsh to me, especially since I play resonator dulcimer most of the time.

I tried a thumb pick and finger picks years ago when I was first learning to play dulcimer.  I got them to fit but I didn't work with them long enough to determine if they were beneficial.
