What kind of cactus do I have?

I got it from the home depot one day and I've had it for about a year and a half now. It's blooming again. Here's a brief description:
The flowers are small and yellow orange, with pink stripes
It's globe shaped
It has wooly clumps in between spines (if that's the right terminology)
Thanks!

It's very difficult to identify a plant based solely on a brief written description. Pictures would be a great benefit. :)

My camera never really focuses, but here it is:

The picture is fine. :)

My guess would be Mammillaria Nejapensis, although I'm always a bit uneasy ID-ing a Mammillaria to the species level. There are so many of them, and some species have only very minor differences between them.
