If you wish to order a set of ChiaoGoo Forte needles, email me and I will put you on a list and notify you if more are available.
ChiaoGoo’s newest Special Edition interchangeable set, Forté, includes tips that are an elegant combination of sleek, stainless steel and luxurious African Blackwood. This limited-edition exclusive set also boasts new SWIV360 interchangeable cables. Silver in color, the cables have the same properties as the much-loved red and blue TWIST cables PLUS an added swivel feature! No more fighting with tangled cables - knitters have been hoping for this for years!
The Forté set includes 14 pairs of 5” (13 cm) tips US2 – 15 (2.75 – 10 mm--and includes US2.5 [3 mm]). Each threaded steel join is laser etched with the tip diameter and join size which will not wear off ever. The set comes with six memory-free SWIV360 cables, steel scissors, a measuring tape, end stoppers, stitch markers, darning needles, a swatch/needle gauge and much more! Plus, all Forté parts and pieces have [S] or [L] size joins so they are switchable with all other similarly coded ChiaoGoo interchangeable parts.
Made of REACH compliant man-made material, the Forté case is just as elegant and functional as the tips and cables. It includes a double-sided, removable needle board that firmly houses all tips; elastic that securely holds but gives easy access to accessories; and four pockets to hold the rest of your knitting supplies including a spot for your pattern or notes. And, true to other ChiaoGoo cases, it opens book-style with a full zipper enclosure to ensure that nothing falls out. A beautiful addition to any makers tool kit, the Forté Set was thoughtfully created with the serious knitter in mind.
