Lighter than 3/32 can be found at Walmart joanns or Hancock fabrics. 3/32 can be had from OWFinc, quest outfitters, or any number of online outdoor myog dealers. Check DIY GearSupply

Randy, If you need a little (10-20 feet), send me a PM and I'll throw some in an envelope to you. I've got 1/8" and 3/32".

If you need a small quantity sooner, REI and sports shoe stores stock the following:

but at $7, it is only 2 pieces of 1 meter each plus two little plastic cord locks.

I also keep larger sizes around the house, because it comes in handy.
