    Assuming you are tuning B-E-A-D-G-C-F, you could buy a set of your favourite six string flats and use a plain steel F string from Conklinguitars.com (the SIT Powersteel string is the plain one, while the Snakeskin string is roundwound). It may not have the exact sound of the other six strings, but it's as close to a flatwound high F string as you're going to get.

    Judging by the guages that looks it's supposed to be tuned F#-B-E-A-D-G-C, but that is going to be one hell of a floppy F# string.
