They look and feel like Teddy Bear Hamsters.

You can have Satin Harley, Velveteen Harley, Rex Harley, Regular Harley, as well as what I call "Whatever".
Sadly his fur was smoothed down in this picture, though you can see the length to it, and his mohawk which most Harley's sport.
Satin rats have long thin coats with a lustrous shine to them, the coat is also very fine and silky.

Whiskers are usually kinky, wavy or curled back towards the eyes, rather then forward like standard coated rats.
Best picture at the moment.
