ChiaoGoo’s newest Special Edition interchangeable set, Forté, includes tips that are an elegant combination of sleek, stainless steel and luxurious, African Blackwood. 

The Forté set also boasts the 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! Knitters have been hoping for this for years. We are happy to offer these cables and hope they gain your approval.

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 in the case securely holds, but gives easy access to, accessories. And four convenient pockets in the case hold the rest of your knitting supplies – including a spot for your pattern or notes. And, as with ChiaoGoo's other cases, this one too opens book-style with a full zipper enclosure to ensure that nothing falls out.

The Forté set includes 14 pairs of 5-inch (13 cm) tips, sizes US-2 thru US-15 (2.75 – 10 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 of ChiaoGoo's other similarly coded interchangeable parts.

NOTE: ChiaoGoo is proud to support the African Blackwood Conservation Project (ABCP), an organization committed to replanting African Blackwood and raising awareness about the international importance of the tree as well as improving the standard of living in communities where they work. The ABCP also advocates for environmental intervention in the Mt. Kilimanjaro watershed. A Blackwood seedling will be planted and nurtured at the ABCP for each Forté set purchased.
