What you guys call this thing in your countries? Is it candy floss, cotton candy or fairy floss. We call it candy floss in Pakistani English.

An acquaintance of mine when I was a kid owned a small cotton candy machine. He was quite popular. :)

It's invariably 'fairy floss' in Australia.

The word you're after there is fairy. "Fairly" is an adjective meaning "somewhat".

I am sorry for the typing mistake. let me edit it.
