I would say that you should knit/crochet (I don't know how you're making the monkey since I didn't look at the pattern) a rectangle and make a little pouch. Fill your sample with rice and microwave it to test it.
I made an eye mask out of mercinized cotton and it's done fine. I would suppose that wool would work as well, but test it before you make the whole monkey.
