Thermostat wire is 18 gauge solid, and it comes in all different numbers of 
conductors, or you can just unzip the jacket and use the wires individually.  
You should be able to buy it by the foot at your local hardware store.  
Thermostats are low voltage devices, but the wire that I bought *looks* just 
like normal 600 V wire.  I haven't had any problems with it.  HTH
