What the Maker says:
“After going through countless retractable plastic tape measures, and feeling bad about throwing them away when they no longer retracted, I bought myself one of these pebble tape measures. It’s so smooth in the hand, I found I was looking for things to measure because I wanted an excuse to use it – and half an hour after I was finished measuring, I’d find I was still turning it in my palm! I tracked down the source so I could share the joy with Cocoknits customers. This tape measure is not retractable, it really cannot break, but you do need to hold the tape or it will coil back into its pebble.
After years of requests, we have finally made our own version of a tape measure – in Sea Glass, Mustard Seed, and Wild Rose (aqua, yellow, and pink). 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.
Because Cocoknits is committed to avoiding plastic wherever possible, we 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.
Each tape measure is packaged in a reusable linen drawstring bag to minimize packaging waste. ”
This PLA is not water soluble, so the tape measure can be submerged in water without causing change in the material.
