Yes, you probably will want 28AWG wire, as that looks a lot like this, though you could also order enamelled copper wire instead, same gauge, and have it even thinner, though it will be single strand.

Otherwise do you have any of those cheap USB cords around that you can simply cut and strip the outer sleeve off, giving you 4 colours of this wire for nearly free.
