Cocoknits Tape Measure

Cocoknits own version of a tape measure – The bright colors 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 fibre. This is a  100% fibre 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)

The absence of a locking mechanism keeps them 100% plastic-free and reduces the likelihood of breakage.

Each tape measure is packaged in a reusable linen drawstring bag to minimize packaging waste.

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 any change in the material.
