Let’s Talk About Doing the Mitzva of Techeiles Properly, Year-Round

Techeiles – Tekhelet – Techelet – Tcheiles Strings in Toronto and globally at Unbeatable Prices

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, and whether one pronounces/spells it as Techeiles, Tekhelet, Techelet, or  Tcheiles, 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.

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.
