Please advise on kite string

Hello.
I recently purchased a new kite, but need some string for it.
It's the most basic, pure kite, and is really just a triangle with a few spars in it.
The bottom edge is approximately 2m long and it's about one meter tall. Aside from that it has a little bit (200g - 300g) of lights and batteries on it.
I expect to need about 1000m of string, but I don't know what kind to buy and where to buy it.
Please keep suggestions as low-cost as necessary, but solid.

Also it's the kind where you just stuff in two halves of a spar into those little pockets and then put them together, but I'm always afraid of tearing the kite or breaking the rod when I'm putting it in. Tips/suggestions? I believe the rods are fiberglass but I am not sure. The material I think is some sort of nylon.

Thanks
