Now available in 6 colors!
After years of requests, Cocoknits has finally made its own plastic-free tape measure. Available in six different colors: Clay, Linen, Storm, Sea Glass, Mustard Seed, and Wild Rose (red, white, gray, aqua, yellow, and pink). The bright colors will ensure you can always find it in your project bag. The earth tone colors add a pebble inspired look to your tools. 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, these tape measures are manufactured 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.
Each tape measure is packaged in a reusable linen drawstring bag to minimize 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
- Metal tab to keep tape from retracting into the body of the tape measure
- No locking mechanism keeps them 100% plastic-free and reduces the likelihood of breakage
- casing: 2.5 x 2 x .5 in (6.5 x 5 x 1.27 cm)
- metal tape: 78 in / 2 m long
How to Use
This tape measure does not have a locking mechanism, so hold the metal tab or the tape at the body to keep it extended.
This PLA is not water soluble, so the tape measure can be submerged in water without causing any changes in the material.
