Tamarisk Twig Pencils™
are hand-crafted from fallen twigs of the tree commonly called saltcedar.
This tree was introduced to California during the 1820's and thrives in the deserts and other environments.
Our handmade colored Tamarisk Twig Pencils™ are natural, whimsical, practical, and have a special appeal for children and adults. They are really fun tools for drawing and coloring. No trees are cut down to make our twig pencils.
Each pencil is approx. 5 inches long and 3/16 -3/8 inches in diameter. The core is a clay and wax mixture with pigment added. Over 1.5 inches of usable core is available. The core is PMA approved non-toxic and safe for children. They can be sharpened using a hand-held pencil sharpener, or safely whittling with a knife.
Tamarisk Twig Pencils™ are sold in bundle sets of seven different (mixed) colors tied with raffia cord and a product information tag.
