WANTED: 3mm flexible plastic fiberoptic filament


Dear friends:

I am looking for 3mm flexible transparent fiberoptic filament. I recently got one of those 'LED shoelace' kits off eBay and I have use for the fiberoptic filament itself, not the LEDs and driver circuits.

The filament is very flexible, somewhat rubbery in texture. I believe it's polyester or silicone. It's not a wonderful light conductor but it will work for my purposes. I have attached an image. The filament is the exact diameter of a T1 LED.

Any help in finding this stuff would be most appreciated. Thanks!
