Please Note: This is a PRE-ORDER. ChiaoGoo expects these sets to arrive Oct/Nov 2022. Though we cannot guarantee an exact ship date (as these are currently in production).
This set is seriously special. Let us tell you why! The tips are made from stainless steel-- the same tips in the well-loved ChiaoGoo red lace needles and TWIST sets-- and the shafts are made from African Blackwood (scraps from musical instrument manufacturing). The wood is extremely smooth yet warm and comfortable in your hand.
The Forte Set comes with 6 cables (14", 22", and 30" in both small and large sizes), small and large stoppers, connectors, stitch markers, a notions case complete with darning needles and safety pins, stitch markers, rubber grip for tightening, a needle gauge/ruler, tape measure, and scissors. The case is magnetic, allowing you to keep all of your tools securely in one place. All of this is packaged in a beautiful ChiaoGoo zippered case.
Includes tips that are an elegant combination of sleek stainless steel and luxurious African Blackwood. The set also boasts their new SWIV360 interchangeable cables.
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 ChiaoGoo form, it opens book-style with a full zipper enclosure to ensure that nothing falls out.
The set includes 14 pairs of 5” (13cm) tips US2 – 15 (2.75 – 10mm) including US2.5 (3mm). Each threaded steel join is laser etched with the tip diameter and join size which will not wear off ever. Six memory-free SWIV360™ cables, steel scissors, a measuring tape, end stoppers, stitch markers, darning needles, a needle/swatch gauge and more come with the set! Plus, all Forté parts and pieces have [S] or [L] size joins so they are switchable with all of our other similarly coded interchangeable parts.
