Furry black & orange caterpillars

When I lived in Washington State, we had large furry black and orange striped caterpillars that rolled up into a ball when you picked them up......can you PLEASE tell me what their true name is so that I can find out about them? Thank you!

Sounds like the Banded Woolybear caterpillar to me, check out our field guide (link below) for much more information and a picture of this species.
