    There may not be a direct word for this as it is quite customary for the Eastern cultures to keep it short !
    Having said that and although I cannot back this up, in my "hey days" (!) I've heard the term "orman" !

    Tüy is quite weak to explain this as it is more used for the feathery weak blond hair on the arms or armpits maybe on the ears.
    It is also used for feather on animals like the feather of a bird.

    "Kıl" is a bit stronger, darker and more appropriate to use for humans.
    On its own it is not as strong, dense or slang as "muff".

    Hope this helps !
