Looking around, there are quite a few plants that fit the bill.
A very strokable Lophophora williamsii:

Just seen these, Diane. They're absolutely beautiful and all look bouncing with good health. And what a wonderful little Cono, that is!
First it was orchids, then, since c.2001, cacti and succulents. I'm into South African plants, mainly conos, lithops and haworthias, with a few cacti, especially 'posh' mamms, turbs and other smalls.

A couple of pilose specimens for your perusal. I'm hoping your responses won't be too bristly because my identification of them may be woolly.

A mammillaria plumosa
and I think
A Oreocereus celsianus

and as un divertissement floculant - the "old man" - a child of the 60s was on a happy trip - he sits near to the Lophophora williamsii on the conservatory sill

Continuing a journey of discovery as I grow cactus seeds and offsets, and discover all kinds of wonderful plants in Cactus Nurseries. Just love Echinopsis, Lithops, Aeoniums and Gymnocalycium .... and....and .... now discovering Rebutia (thought I'd never bother having lost one a winter ago) and Sulcorebutia and Aylostera .... from where did those Echinocereus plants arrive?

There are some amazing plant photos posted so far. This is a cristate Echeveria I spotted in a row of non-crested plants. I don't usually grow Echeverias but it intrigued me, so I thought I'd give it a go and see how it grew. It was unlabelled but appears to be E. 'Bombycina' or E. setosa.

This is a plant bought as Sedum hintonii, which doesn't appear to be in cultivation, so it's probably Sedum mocinianum. I posted this pic on social media recently and had several people ask me if it felt fluffy or bristly, but it's a really odd texture. I think I would describe it as rubbery.

It is, Aiko. If you hold your cursor over the photo, you'll get the file name - 'Shmoo'. Growing at Springfontein. I don't think it would last long in my greenhouse.
