Source for Cloth/Cotton Covered Wire for Hanging Lamps

Anybody know of an internet source for cotton/cloth covered wire. The type used on old pull down fixtures and poulsen and other "Danish Modern" lamps. Any tips would be appreciated

Classicform, this is not the wire I'm looking for. This wire is flat and was used as lamp cord for table lamps. The wire I'm looking for is round and was used for hanging lamps. (I think(

Hmm hard to tell. The brown looks the flat, the others maybe round. I'm going to give them a call and see what they say. I'm a bit dubious or its roundness, as it is also 18/2 gauge as was the first one. Will let you know what they have to say.

Jeez, getting those people on the phone is like trying to pull teeth. I hung up after 10 minutes on hold. I may just bite the bullet and order some and see if its the right stuff. Any other ideas of where to get this stuff or what its actually called would still be appreciated
