This is true, but mandates a 15A overcurrent device.... The 25A can be used when applying the derating/etc rules. Still only available to supply 15A though.

What your describing is commonly called "lamp wire". Similar to: http://www.homedepot.com/p/t/2022064...3#.UUUHTVfwCF8


You probably shouldn't strip the jacket though, as its not intended to be... It will no longer meet code as it isn't marked (if thats a concern for you). Given the availability of proper wire, I wouldn't bother with it but its up to you.
