Quilters have long enjoyed using Bohin’s Mechanical pencils. This .9mm pencil is perfect for more accurate marking, and it excels on tightly woven cotton and stretch wovens.
Cloth Edit has also tested this tool on dark silk georgette, and a hemp blend denim, both with great success. The fine point isn’t sufficient for marking looser weaves such as heavier weight linens, and isn’t visible enough on multi-colour, yarn dyed linen.
This tool is a pleasure to use, and perfect for marking up your cloth for detailed embroidery embellishments. The Bohin pencil comes already loaded, and includes six additional cartridges. The rubber on the end of the pencil erases the ceramic ‘lead’. While the chalk is designed to not penetrate the fabric, always test a small sample first.
Yellow refills are available (and other colours, such as pink and blue, upon request).
