I have had good results using cat5 cable as it's somewhat shielded and the wires are twisted for signal protection

I have not done this before and was wondering if I could get away with something cheap like 4 conductor telephone cable or if that will cause enough signal degradation that it could mess with the colours. The LED driving circuitry can't be closer, so that isn't an option.
