Beautiful pastel pencils, ideal for sketching and doodling. Each set comes with 12 pencils in 5 different colors: Mint, peach, blush pink, baby blue and light yellow. Made of 100% wood, they come in HB or 2B graphite. How to choose? If you like a lighter, harder and more defined trace then HB is your pencil. Otherwise, if you like a darker trace with a more free line, then 2B should be your pick. In general, 2B is used for sketching and doodling, and HB is used for writing.
