Need a yarn suggestion for a non-knitting use
Hello all. I'm happy to have found this forum and I'm hoping you can help me. I hope I picked the right category, and I apologize if I haven't.

I don't knit, so I don't really know yarn. We use yarn when sailing to tie spinnakers (the big colorful sails) together to make them easier to set. The key, however, is that the yarn must break easily.

Here's what we're looking for in yarn:
- Must break easily
- It is helpful if it is thicker than fingering (just from a dexterity standpoint).
- Comes in small (long) skeins, not large skeins, balls or twisted.
- the less expensive, the better.

Color and composition really don't matter.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what yarn would be best for this application? And an online source would be great if possible (I've had no luck finding anything that will work at places like Michael's).

Thank you so much! I appreciate the help with this non-knitting issue.
