What's the right name for the chinese finger trap wire loom?

I'm trying to find a certain type of wire loom (or sleeve) that I've seen in the past in stereo installations and prefab harnesses.

It's like a "Chinese Finger Trap" in that its expandable and contracts down to grip the wires when you stretch it, because its a woven polyester material.

Does anyone know what the correct name is, and if its available from common sources like Summit, Crutchfield, or Radio Shack?

Check this place out.
I think you're looking for the Nylon expandable braided sleeving.
