These are no longer a pre-order. They are in stock! But there are only a few left.

The Forté set came out in the fall of 2022, and this 2.0 version is new and improved! Quantities are limited, and I can promise you they will sell out, so get your pre-order in today!

The original Forté set included tips that were an elegant combination of sleek, stainless, and luxurious African Blackwood. This wood is used to make musical instruments, such as the clarinet. After receiving feedback on the original Forte set, ChiaoGoo decided to make the 2.0 set with carbon fiber shafts for the [S] sizes US 2-8 and keep the larger sizes [L} US 9-15 out of the African Blackwood. The carbon fiber, which is much stronger than wood, is a lot less likely to break but is still beautiful.

In addition to the SWIV360 interchangeable cables included in the original set, the new 2.0 set will include 3 [S] Red TWIST cables. The SWIV360 are silver in color, the cables have the same properties as the much-loved red and blue TWIST cables PLUS an added swivel feature! Each threaded steel join is laser etched with the tip diameter and join size which will not wear off ever.

All Forté 2.0 parts and pieces have [S] or [L] size joins so they are switchable with all of ChiaoGoo's 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, it opens book-style with a full zipper enclosure to ensure that nothing falls out.
