I just wish I could find some cotton blankets. Even expensive ones seem to be synthetic or mixed. Not sheets but blankets and a quilt with a cotton liner.
The synthetic ones don't breathe. Even on cold nights you end up sweating while still feeling cold.
Physical Significance 1. Pagan Priests were known to have worn a certain type of garment made of vegetable(flax/linen) and animal(sheep/wool) materials. This could have been the main reason for this prohibition. As Maimonides, a prominent Jewish philosopher and Scholar wrote in “Moreh iii, 37” – “the heathen priests adorned themselves with garments containing vegetable and animal materials, while they held in their hand a seal of mineral. This you will find written in their books”
The Statute explained It is important to note that the statute is not about mixing any type of thread. Rather, it is mixing of Wool & Linen(Shah-at-nez) specifically. The statute does not extend to other types of thread – hence silk, polyester, rayon, etc do not apply. Also, there is no prohibition against wearing one type of garment over another type of garment, even if they were Wool & Linen. The prohibition was to not weave wool and linen together into one garment for wearing.
I think that is the nature of the written prohibition of wool and linen, as that was a fabric mix reserved for the Priesthood
I’ve also had discussions about the use of full-body silk garments as a kind of “capacitor” to enhance the body’s electrical field; but I have never been able to afford to experiment with this idea.

I just wanted to share this listing.
This hemp fabric is 170+ years old and just look at it!
Isn't that amazing! There are tons of listings for hemp fabric that are around that age or older. What does that say!??
I collect antique textiles and a lot of people are so delicate with them. They don't realize they are 10X stronger than anything we have now. You can wash them many many times, and they get better with age. Most clothing now gets worse with age. Can't wait until hemp is back full force
