Lyra Super Ferby "Waldorf" Colouring Pencils
The "Super Ferby" pencils are a step beyond the Lyra Ferby Pencils. While their triangular shape helps beginners to master the "tripod" grip, their 17.5cm length and thicker core make for an even sturdier and robust companion for young creatives. The Waldorf assortment was put together for use in Rudolf Steiner Schools whose curriculum blends imagination and creative play with practical, conceptual and artistic exercise.
Made in Germany .
12 Pencil Set includes: Zinc Yellow, Lemon, Light Orange, Scarlet Lake, Light Carmine, Magenta, Light Blue, Prussian Blue, Sap Green, Apple Green, Van Dyck Brown and Venetian Red.
Lyra of Germany had been producing fine art materials since 1806. In fact, it was due to Napoleon Bonaparte that the company's founder Johann Froescheis could register his business as pencil manufacturer at the magistracy of Nuremberg in the year 1806.
The former Free Reich's City lost it's privileges to set it's own rules. Napoleon ordered the administrative restructuring of, in this case Bavaria, of which Nuremberg was made part. Up until that time it was the privilege of the carpenters guild to make pencils in Nuremberg. Since that time, Lyra has built a reputation for quality and durability and has built trade partnerships worldwide. We love them and I think that you will too.
The Super Ferby
The next generation of the original FERBY® coloured pencil. This pencils maintains the chunky proportions and tirnagulare shape so as to encourage a "tripod" grip that is beneficial for budding writers and artists. The lead is break resistant as always. However, the lead is slightly thicker and the length is londer in the Super Ferby. If what they say about "practice making perfect", then this is the perfect pencil for young children to get hours of use and enjoyment honing their skills.
