It's also best practice to thread the wire through teflon tubing before
winding, as the thermalese wire insulation is not enough to handle the high
voltages at moderate power levels with many antennas.

In general terms this wire is magnet wire used in transformers. It has very
good thermal and voltage breakdown properties.

I have different sizes here if you need a small amount. Any motor shop
and/or wire dist like The Wireman has some.
