We love these Mechanical Pencils because of the Ceramic Lead which does not flake off. We offer a White pencil packaged with White Lead, a Black pencil packaged with Grey Lead and a Pink Pencil Packaged with Pink Lead. We also offer refills in all the colors as certain Leads are better for certain jobs. For example, drawing a clear, easy-to-see line on white linen, we recommend the Grey refill. You can stitch directly on the line and the lead does not mark your thread whatsoever. Also works on Needlepoint Canvas, particularly for drawing names at the top of a needlepoint Christmas stocking.
