Attached is a picture with a home made solution of two 24AWG silicone wires and three 30AWG silicone wires in clear heat shrink. Is that a good way to do this?
Silicone might be difficult to find but I got lots of hits when I Googled "multiple conductor cable". Or, if you're in the U.S. you can try DigiKey or Mouser. You can get "telephone cable" in 2, 4, or 6 pair. Phone cable comes solid or stranded and of course you want stranded since you want it to be flexible. "Cat 5" or "Cat 6" Ethernet cable is 4-pair (8 conductors) and it's super common.There's nothing wrong with that if it works for you. It's time consuming so you wouldn't want to do that "in production".
I make up cabling as seen in this link:http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=381469.0 See PDF offered there.

Nice one Larry. Where did you get the removable pin version of the headers from? I wouldn't mind getting some of those to try out.Update: found it.... "2.54mm Male+Female Dupont Wire Jumper And Header Connector Housing Kit" - ebay.
Do the wires really have to be smaller?5 wire silicone cable for a soldering iron:https://www.banggood.com/Five-Core-Silicone-Wire-for-T12-HAKKO-936-937-907-Soldering-Station-Handle-Line-p-1153992.html
I think you aced it there! First post said five wires, that is five wires. +1!And a five metre length!
