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). 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.
