Coconut Yarn
I didn't know quite where to put this question, but I want to knit a coconut. For all you yarn enthusiasts...does anyone have any ideas for yarn that kind of resembles a coconut shell? Like a stringy/fibery brown? Thanks guys.

Fun Fur would probably look appropriate. They have a color called chocolate that looks kinda coconutty brown.
