Default Braided Plug wire suppression sheath

Can anyone tell me where I might find some replacement braided plug wire suppression cable. The metal sheath that goes over the plug wire on engines with electronic ignitions. I tried the local NAPA store with no results. Surely it can be purchased at a parts store, if someone had a part number it would be fantastic. Any help would be appreciated.

What I do is strip the braiding off of television coaxial cable. The braid will accomodate larger or smaller wire by just compressing or stretching it a bit.

If that doesn't work for you, try Aircraft Spruce & Specialty in California.

I think this is not metal braided sleeve, but some kind of plastic material.
