These amazing needle sets are pre-orders and are expected to arrive this fall or winter. ALL SALES ARE FINAL.
ChiaoGoo is coming out with a brand new knitting needle set that is blowing our minds. This newest Special Edition interchangeable set, Forté, includes tips that are an elegant combination of sleek, stainless, and luxorious, African Blackwood. This wood is used to make musical instruments,
The set also boasts our 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! 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 of our 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.
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. They also advocate for the environmental intervention in the Mt. Kilimanjaro watershed. Visit blackwoodconservation.org for more information. A Blackwood seedling will be planted and nurtured at the ABCP for each Forté set purchased.
