I don't know how many types of fabric this will work on but I did not want to 'fuzz-up' any part of a grey 100% superfine wool I'm making into a jacket by using a brush on the end of a fabric marking pencil.

I tried a piece of the 'self-fabric' and rubbed the markings and they came off without a hitch!

It's worth a try with any fabric before using a brush that may cause the fabric to have a scrubbed or worn look in one or more areas.

Relatedly, I discovered just today that scotch tape does a super job of removing chalk from dupioni.

The self fabric on fabric technique is also a professional secret of proper English valets taking care of Milord's suits. Works good for removing many spots on your jacket after it's made, too.
