Both would work. It really depends on how the prop is lit. If the top is going to be dark, I'd go with dark thread. If it's going to be lit, use fishing line, or light colored thread. If you can shoot wide open, it'll help hide the thread; if it's thin enough and out of focus, it should disappear.

You don't need CG to remove the wire, you likely don't even need a clean plate. Importing the clip, scene setup and configuring the output render settings would all likely take longer than the business of removing the wire in AfterEffects.
