ChiaoGoo Limited Edition Forté Set **pre-order**Regular price $300.00
These limited edition sets are pre-order and will now ship hopefully by late December
We've been able to claim some of these super cool needle sets for our Fuzzy Fans. The talk of our recent market trip, we were glad to get our order in before the SOLD OUT announcement came. We're pre-selling our alloted sets and when they're gone, they're gone.
What makes these special? The ChiaoGoo Interchangeable Needle Set is the Rolls Royce needle systems. ChiaoGoo's newest Limited Edition set, Forté, includes tips that are an elegant combination of sleek, stainless steel and luxurious, African Blackwood*. As with their steel tips, these needles are just the right amount of pointy with a really great taper, I love them for brioche or knit two or three togethers. ChiaoGoo have really mastered these tips and have a wide range from US 2-15 with their new swivel cords.
The set also boasts the brand new SWIV360 swivel 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!
The Forté set includes
- 14 pairs of 5" tips sized US 2-15.
- Each threaded steel join is laser etched with the tip diameter and join size which will not wear off.
- 6 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 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 our other cases, it opens book-style with a full zipper enclosure to ensure that nothing falls out.
*What makes them limited is that ChiaoGoo is getting the African Blackwood from scraps cast off from musical instrument construction. My son is a professional drummer so I just love this idea.
