After years of requests, Cocoknits has finally made their own version of a tape measure. The bright colours will ensure you can always find it in your project bag. The metal tape inside measures both inches and cm/mm (78 in / 2 m long), and has a metal tab on the end to keep it from retracting into the body of the tape measure.
Because Cocoknits is committed to avoiding plastic wherever possible, they manufactured it from PLA, a 100% biodegradable plant fiber(similar to the Needle Gauge, but not water soluble). The absence of a locking mechanism keeps them 100% plastic-free and reduces the likelihood of breakage.
Available in two colours ; Sea Glass and Wild Rose
Each tape measure is packaged in a reusable linen drawstring bag to minimise packaging waste.
Made of PLA - 100% fiber waste called polylactic acid, which is made from fermented plant starch such as corn, beets, or sugar cane. It is 100% biodegradable and contains no plastic (this product can get wet; it is NOT water soluble)
Packaged individually in a linen drawstring bag with Cocoknits logo

casing: 2.5 x 2 x .5 in (6.5 x 5 x 1.27 cm)

How to Use The tape measure does not have a locking mechanism, so hold the metal tab or the tape at the body to keep it extended.
Care This PLA is not water soluble, so the tape measure can be submerged in water without causing change in the material.
