the only thing you post I am not sure what you mean when you say it should be thicker then fingering? Do you mean it should be as think as a finger?
Fingering yarn is the stuff I use to make socks, it's pretty skinny with 7 or more sts to the inch.

All I can think of is maybe a cotton yarn, but most of the ones I've used don't break that easily. Maybe a twine? They come in various sturdinesses.
