traditionally because Faux Fur is a polyester or Artificial fiber...it doesn't take dye a bit or at all..and if you treat it with heat or too roughly it will get all matted *which sounds like what you're experiencing*
also, when doing the sharpie dying, make sure to wash it a few times till the water runs clear after letting it set for a few days, This will make sure it doesn't bleed onto your clothes or when wet
