Becasue Cocoknits is committed to avoiding plastic wherever possible, this measuring tape is 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.
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" / 2 m long), and has a metal tab on the end to keep it from retracting into the body of the tape measure.
Each tape measure is packaged in a reusable linen drawstring bag to minimize packaging waste.
