ChiaoGoo Forte Interchangeable Needle set

Sale price Price $300.00 Regular price Unit price  per 


The highly-anticipated Forté Interchangeable Needle Set from ChiaoGoo is being released this fall and is being called the is the Rolls Royce of Interchangeable Stainless Steel Circular Needle systems. 

Forté includes 14 tips, size 2 through 15 (including both 2.5 and 10.5) 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, that's neither too severe or so long that it affects your gauge. 

The BRAND NEW set also boasts their new SWIV360 interchangeable cables. Much like their current

non-kink cords, these cables have a clear coating, and have a swivel join.

The cables are ingeniously engineered with a steel core so they have no memory. Twist them and they'll always go back to their original straight shape! No frustrating kinks or bends.

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 remainder of your knitting supplies including a spot for your pattern or notes.

This case opens book-style with a full zipper enclosure to ensure everything stays in place.

Included in the Forté set are:

  • 14 pairs of 5” (13 cm) tips 2.75 - 10mm (US2 – 15).
  • Each threaded steel join is laser etched with the tip diameter and join size which will not wear off.
  • Six memory-free SWIV360 cables
  • Steel scissors
  • A measuring tape
  • End stoppers
  • Stitch markers
  • Darning needles
  • A swatch/needle gauge, and more!! (seriously - watch the video!)

All Forté parts and pieces have [S] or [L] size joins so they can be used with all other similarly coded Chiaogoo interchangeable parts.

Lastly, if you're like me and environmentally conscience, ChiaoGoo is getting the African Blackwood from scraps cast off from musical instrument construction. ChiaoGoo also is planting an African Blackwood tree for every set sold. 

The Forte needles will NOT be available for sell outside the full set. We will ship these pre-orders as soon as we receive them in the fall. 

These needles are special orders, so Customer Loyalty Points cannot be applied to the purchase of the needles.
