Default Light 3 core silicone mains cable?

If you can't get exactly what you want, how about using ordinary
lightweight mains cable with silicon tube as sleeving? Or with heatproof
sleeving such as

but of greater diameter?


I'm not sure how that would impact the overall 'feel' of the cable
Jeff, something I was trying improve, certainly on the things like
soldering irons.

OOI, our Miele 'Big Cat and Dog' cleaner has a very flexible cable on
it (to work best with the self recoiling mech) and you can buy
replacement cables for them that are around 10m long for 35 witch is
a bit cheaper than buying the 1.5m lengths but I think it's only 2
core (double isolated plastic bodied cleaner). ;-(
