That's microFarad, a capacitor. Not microHenry, an inductor.

Digikey's phone support will walk you through their inventory and set you up with the right part. I expect Newark and Mouser will as well, all three are great at sourcing parts. Offhand...either you meet the minimum order amount or you pay a stiffer shipping fee, so look around and see if you can use anything else, batteries, LEDs, buzzers, anything at all because sometimes it is simpler and cheaper to meet the minimum than not.

Of course, Real Men wind their own inductors, you just need some magnet wire and a core to wind it around. (VBG)
