As the title says! Plumose is OK too.

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!

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

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.

Is that a Muiria?

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.
