Where can I buy good quality elastic string for cuffs?

I've been on the lookout for good elastic string for cuffs; NOT CLEAR STRETCH CORD like Stretch Magic or Bead n Stretch. I need a strong, probably kinda thick (1.5 to 2mm) elastic string for cuffs. I've had no luck at Wal-Mart. I went there to look for this string that a lot of kandi makers have suggested to me; it's called StretchRite. And they don't sell it anymore! And last time I went to Michael's they only had very thin elastic. For those of you that use good strong elastic for cuffs; where can I find some?

I go to Joane's fabrics or Michael's for my string.

Thanks Crumpet! I'll have to go see again, probably at a few different Michael's. Unfortunately, I can't order things online right now.

The Michael's I used to go to always had pretty thick elastic. The thick stuff was rainbow colored. Maybe yours just doesn't carry it or was out of stock I personally get my elastic from a website - http://ssww.com - not a store :/ I mostly use the 1mm elastic they have, but their thicker stuff is great too.
