The gold-standard of interchangeable knitting needles, Chiao Goo has added sleek and elegant luxury to their collection with the new and improved Forté 2.0 Interchangeable Set. 

Forté 5" (13cm) needle tips combine stainless steel with two different materials - industrially-strong carbon fiber for the smaller needles, and sustainably-sourced African Blackwood for the larger sizes.  The set includes a total of 14 tip sizes (including that elusive 3.0mm), each laser etched with the needle and cord size that will never rub off. 

The Forté set also includes six of the new SWIV360 swivel cables that pivot effortlessly at the join, plus three sizes of the original RED Twist cables. Like all Chiao Goo cables, they are are memory free and kink-resistant, and compatible with all other Chiao Goo interchangeable sets and parts.

Also included with each set are stainless steel scissors, measuring tape, stitch markers, stoppers, swatch and needle gauge, darning needles and more.

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 2.0 Set was thoughtfully created with the serious knitter in mind.
