For working model rigging I have used the following with no problems.


Dacron 25kg BS for running rigging.
Dacron 50-60kg for standing rigging.
This is white, but it stains well with boot polish. It is a not mono-filament, but is woven and runs well.


I got mine from SailsEtc.com, no connection just a happy customer. They also have some nice vintage fittings in brass.
