Chiaogoo Forte Interchangeable Set

From Chiaogoo:

At this time, we regret to inform you that production of the Forte set has been temporarily suspended.  Since its release back in November, we have experienced a high breakage rate in the smaller sized [S] join tips and need to reassess several things before resuming production. 

We are working hard to find a solution. However, due to the current COVID situation in China and the Chinese New Year shutdown, little progress will occur until the second half of February or March. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you and ask for continued patience.

Individuals or retailers who have experienced breakage or have a problem with their Forte set and are located in the US can receive direct support from us by going to our website and filling out a Replacement Request form.  

Those outside of the US can receive assistance from the retailer or distributor they purchased the sets from. 

While our plan is to have another supply of the Forte sets for distribution, we don’t foresee them being available for purchase again until June of this year.  No pre-orders will be taken.  

  • ChiaoGoo’s newest Special Edition interchangeable set, Forté, includes tips that are an elegant combination of sleek, stainless steel and luxurious, African Blackwood.
  • 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! Knitters have been hoping for this for years.
  • We are happy to deliver and hope it captures your approval.
  • 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.
  • 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.
