All you need is something that will measure continuity. There are some relatively inexpensive devices made for doing this. There are some simple continuity testers in which will illuminate an LED indicator light when a circuit is completed. Check your local hardware store, mega home imnprovement store, or Radio Shack. A voltmeter, ohmeter, or multimeter will work, too; also available form the same places.
But there should be SOMETHING that distinguishes one strand from another. Lettering? A "rib". Something. If not, I would not use it. It's just going to be a pain in the ass.
