The manufacturer Lyra says it best about these pencils:
“We believe that all humans are equal, despite the different colours of their skin. In order to portray this in colour, LYRA has created an assortment of Colour Giant® pencils incorporating the 12 most common skin colours of the people of our world. That way everyone can be portrayed equally, without discrimination, in the colour of their skin. A drawing set for tolerance and understanding.”
The leads have a diameter of 6.25 mm, are especially break-resistant and economical to use. The highly pigmented lead gives the colours their extreme intensity. The soft leads flow easily across the paper and are smudge and waterproof.
