sounds like they were either picked and left, or left and not picked and the fruit body (part of it) started to rot. The fuzz can come from moisture causing mycelium to grow still on the mushroom.

Now depending on what type of fuzz it is, can have a big difference, some "fuzzy" stuff could be a mold contaminant. The main thing is, is that its really hard for anyone on here to get a good idea of what you have, because we dont have enough information about the subject... now if you had a picture...

If you are really doubtful, throw it out. Why risk it? Keep 's up t' date.

Sounds like high humidity to me, which can cause shrooms to abort on casings, I seem to recall. If the fuzz is white, looks like feathery down, then you're A-OK.
