Hetty: I first thought maybe Chestnut too but the hairy stuff is inside the shell, I thought all Chestnuts had the hairy looking stuff outside? I will keep watching because I sure am curious as to what three this seed/nut is from:

Chestnuts:

Chinese Chestnut (Castanea mollissima)

Sweet Chestnut (Castanea sativa)

My first thought is morning glory bush...it's seeds are furry/hairy
Each cloud has a silver lineing if only you look for it.

I think you're on to something; I de-haired one and found the actual seed is in appearance triangular (w/ one side rounded) like morning glory seeds.
