sure, i use a chamois cloth to blend.. but, instead of making pencil marks directly on the draw i load graphite onto the cloth and then transfere it to my drawing. that way you dont see pencil strokes, it blends continuously.

i hope that hopes have a wonderful day

Oh not just any cloth either..
I use:
Chamois Cloth - A very thin and soft suede-like piece of leather. You can use this to blend large areas of graphite. You can also use it to lift graphite out of an area of that has become too dark.
