I was pushing back on g2c to provide useful information in his question.

Looks like Molex Centi-Grid or Tyco (AMP) Ampmodu. Digi-Key.

AnalogKid: Sorry about that. And you're right.

If I found that on Amazon after about 5 seconds of googling, then he should have found the same info that I did.

I dont understand why i had no notification of the answers!

I have the crimp tool and the connectors and contacts are those in Michaela's link. What i am looking for is a recommendation or link to multistrand wires for making the jumpers.

Thanks for your time

I'd use 7 / 0.2mm equipment wire (or "hookup wire" - same thing) for that size of connector.
That's 0.2 mm^2 or 24AWG, stranded.
eg.
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Stranded-Core-Hook-Up-7-0-2mm-1000V-PVC-1-2mm-Equipment-Wire-11-Colours-/121981720232

If you prefer you can also get multi core cables with individual cores that size.

Note that for the double row type, standard IDC connectors on 0.050" ribbon are compatible with many sockets and pin headers that the discrete wire ones fit.
eg. https://www.amazon.com/Connector-FC-10P-Female-Header-2-54mm/dp/B00TX2Z5NS/ref=sr_1_6?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1551106475&sr=1-6&keywords=idc+connector+10+pin

That depends on what the jumpers are to be used for, and only you know that.
Voltages?
Currents?
AC frequencies?
Lengths?
Environment - lots of flexing or pulling, very high or very temperatures, etc?
