    I bought 70cm strings for my tziztis but they are no longer than the 50cm I had before. What does 70cm mean? It cant mean length before its tied because I measured the actual strings before theyre tied and theyre like 120cm…….so I’m not sure if it came with the wrong strings in the bag……….

    the size indicates the width of the strings not the length.

    Maybe I should have said the thickness of the strings, not the width.

    I take back my previous posts. I looked on the website of a Brooklyn Seforim store and it does correspond to the length. 70 centimeters (cm) is a little over 27″. 50 CM is a little over 19″.

    Product Description
    Pack contains 4 sets of strings enough to tie 4 corners.
    Length: 70cm

    cm is centimeter. It cannot refer to the width because 70 cm is more than an amah. Even one cm is more of a rope than a string. mm does not work well for width either 70 mm being close to 1/4 inch

    Thank you everyone for your very insightful words but it can be thickness because….enough said and it cant be length because that would be way to short (and I measured it and it was like 120 cm)…….so…?

    It is distressing that the participants in this discussion have no familiarity with metric measurement. We don’t all have to be engineers like the Lubavitcher Rebbe, but we should have enough science education to be familiar with metric measurement.

    The metric system is not science.

    A tallis katan with tzitzis 70 cm THICKNESS would require a crane to lift since that is about the size of the heavy lines used by big ships to tie them to the docks….

    The US is not “on” the metric system, but it uses the metric system.

    Thank you GH. I did retract my original mistaken posts less then 2 hours after posting them.
