Techeiles Strings Exclusive to Toronto at Unbeatable Prices

Let's talk about

The Torah commands Jews to, in the event one is wearing a four cornered garment, to wear Tzitzit, with includes an essential ingredient: a Psil Techeiles. While the definitions of Psil and Techeiles are open to debate, the general consensus is that it’s a string or strings of biblical blue. This blue color is sourced by a mysterious sea creature called a Chilazon.

The most popular form of Techeiles today is sourced from the murex trunculus snail. This is the main Techeiles that’s being sold on this site.

We offer unbeatable prices with the convenience of picking up the strings locally. Prices are in CAD.
Murex string sets starting at $54.99. Begadim starting at $18. Tying starting at $25.


Archeology is a funny thing in that a lot of unknowns and skepticism remains, so this isn’t meant to be conclusive evidence. It’s meant to attempt to support historical assertions of Techeiles in Tzitzis though.
