Magnetic Ruler & Gauge Set
Designed to be used with the Cocoknits Maker’s Board (not included) this handy Ruler and Gauge are also useful on their own. Magnets are embedded (without glue) in the back of each tool so they attach to the Maker’s Board, or any metal surface. In addition to measuring and checking knitting needle sizes, these tools can be used as straight edges on the Maker’s Board to help track patterns and charts. Plastic free, they are made of PLA (plant fiber, 100% biodegradable plant fiber, not water soluble) in a charming speckled linen color.
The Ruler is 8” x 1” (20cm x 2.5cm) with 3 embedded magnets and the Needle Gauge is 9.875” x 1.375” (25cm x 3.50cm) with 4 embedded magnets. The gauge measures needle sizes US0-17 / 2 mm – 12 mm (including 2.5mm, 3mm, 7mm and 12mm).
Both the ruler and gauge are made from 100% fiber waste called polylactic acid, which is made from fermented plant starch such as corn, beets or sugar cane. It is 100% biodegradable, not water soluble, and contains no plastic. The PLA is formed around the magnets, no toxic glue was used to secure them and they won’t come out!
