Depending on vendors, each use a different type of braided sleeving, some more rigid and stiffer than some others. I use a Razor mouse and it's braided sleeving is very flexible.

It is a fine braid,and quite flexible,but where it was twist tied,the little sections keep getting stuck behind the desk/monitor,I've tried everything from slightly pinching even wrapping around a pencil,\i think I will have to invest in a bungie...
