This tissue paper, with grid ruled in centimetres, is great to use and a boon when you need to draft something. Finding it, however, when your local source of supply runs out can be tricky for an English-speaking metric user. Searching for it on the net in English finds only references to tissue paper ruled in imperial measurements.
The solution is to search in German or French! This is one occasion when your rusty high school French or German could be really useful. Just search on "Burda Seidenpapier mit Zentimeter-Raster" or "Burda Papier de Soie Quadrille" and with luck you will end up at a major sewing shop that sells online.
Buy a few packets while you're at it.

Thanks, Carolyn, but there is no need because I can get the tissue paper one way or another and buy a few packets when I do find it.

I can easily get it but it is marked in inches. Have never checked to see if the store also carries it in metric. Let me know if I can help
