reposting my reply from 2019:

the keyword is "Vero wire":

and the infamous Vero pencil which is actually utter crap since the tip
is plastic and easily ruined by the soldering iron:


what I use instead is 0.3mm automatic pencil with a little 3d printed
spool holder:


compared to "magnet" wire which has very hard to remove isolation, Vero
wire isolation melts away easily...
