Google tells me that your nozzle is likely 0.5mm in diameter. That should be able to print 0.7mm walls, which I've found to be pretty strong! Which slicer are you using? I had good luck with Slic3r and Cura, both of which should let you alter the extruded diameter (and therefore, wall thickness!)
Natural PLA is one of my favourites. I recently bought some good-quality stuff from Ultimaker, but so far I've only used their blue and flexible white (love it!) filaments - the Natural is still unopened on my shelf. It's next!
I'd love to see a photo of your unintentional LED lampshade!
Since assembling my K8200, I've been doing hardware models for work. I am intrigued by this design and am still refining my printing technique, so I appreciate the insight you have offered as well on the print process. My wife was pleased with the aesthetics of your creation as am I. The first two attempts were printed with natural PLA and have a beautiful crystalline look. at single wall thickness they are too thin for vases(my bad) but will look excellent as light diffusers with LED bulb replacements in my lamp.

Blender seemed to have trouble with the STL export of this. As a result, you'll need to scale it up a fair bit in your slicing program. I used Slic3r and from memory it needed 1000% scaling. It printed fine.
