We have had good luck working with Cynthia Cobb, a product
specialist at The Eraser Company <URL:>, based
in Syracuse, New York. As always, be careful using these, as the
loose and broken fibers can lodge in your skin and be hard to
remove, in addition to concerns about fiber inhalation.  Take care,
