Soapstone Fabric Marking Pencil White is a natural, lightweight soapstone pencil for marking dark fabrics. Soapstone is safe on all fabrics and washes off easily with plain water. The pencil-style case features ridges for a comfortable grip and a transparent barrel shows the length of the soapstone. This Soapstone Fabric Marking Pencil can be sharpened with any pencil sharpener.

Soapstone is a naturally soft, delicate substance and should be handled carefully to reduce breakage. If it breaks, small pieces can still be used in the marking pencil. Soapstone develops a thin, hard surface when it has been exposed to air over a period of time. Re-sharpen the soapstone gently and scrape the point on a piece of sandpaper to sharpen before use.

To Use: Mark fabric with thin lines. Do not iron over marks. Remove marks by gently rubbing fabric or washing fabric with plain water.

Each Marking Pencil comes with one stick of soapstone.

Good marking pencil for darker colors. Large diameter makes it more difficult to use straight edge.

I ordered this marking pencil to use on two different materials: Sunbrella marine grade, and the black underlining material supplied by Sailrite. Regarding how well the pencil marks Sunbrella: you will likely need to stroke at least twice to get a visible line. Regarding how well the pencil marks the black underlining material: the pencil marked well with a single stroke. My complaint about this pencil is the substance is very thick (i.e. the diameter). This means you will need to leave a small gap between your measurement markings and your straight edge. The gap will need to be even thicker for the pencil housing. This makes it slightly more difficult when using a straight edge to draw a line. The white color works best on darker colors. A regular graphite pencil did not work well on the black underlining material, nor my Mediterranean blue Sunbrella. For those reasons it was necessary for me to purchase a soapstone pencil.

Better price than I could get locally and in stock too!

This is a great soap stone marker. I use it all the time highly recommended. Cleans off easily.

No Brainer - This needs to be in your kit

Comfortable to grip, long lasting and much more accurate than the soap chip markers. Great value and great service.

Soapstone Fabric Marking Pencil White

Did a US Army pup tent mod into an optional Whelan tent. Used the soapstone pencil to mark the canvas on a bind and slit application for the two zippers. Thanks to Matt for the tutorial vid. Couldn't have done it w/out his instruction.

It works but is limited in application.

This marker will work on thick, rough, dark material. It does not work well on any cloth lighter than 8oz sunbrella. The marking media soap stone takes a lot of pressure to make a line, which bunches or ripples the material you are trying to make the line on, and you end up with crooked and dashed marks. I thought at first the soap stone was defective, I swapped it with a spare but it did not improve the process. As pointed out by another reviewer, the soapstone and its holder make for a rather bulky "pencil" for fine lines close to a straight edge. If you do a lot of rough canvas and do not require precise measurements, then it works well. Soap stone works really well for metal fabrication and some carpentry.

Like it a lot
