LYRA artist supplies are superior products for serious artists, young and old. LYRA Ferby Unlacquered Pencils feature a large triangular shape and a shortened length which is particularly suitable for beginners and left-handed people. Giant 6.25 millimeter cores are extremely break resistant, wear for 3-4 times longer than standard colored pencils, and require less frequent sharpening. The pencils have a closed end so the core is not exposed and natural, unlacquered wood for very young children who may put the pencils in their mouths. These 12 centimeter long pencils are AP certified non-toxic. Draw, sketch design and empower your creativity with artist products from LYRA.
