Do you mean "braided wire" where it looks like a bunch of individual wire strands braided along the outside of the wire? If so, the "cage" is a shield ala faraday.

I believe SD pickups use a foil shield inside the outer plastic insulation - that bare wire, the un-insulated and un-colored one is the ground that contacts the inside foil.

Just ground it.
