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.

Common Questions and Answers

Tying Details

Q: I would like to tie 7-8-11-13 with Raavad (1/4 ratio). Can I do so with your strings?

A: The Raavad strings provided are regular length. They are designed to wind in tandem with white strings, and therefore only produce 18-24 winds. 7-8-11-13 require 39 winds, 37 of which are Techeiles. It’s certainly doable with longer strings. What can be done is 7-8-11-13 with Rambam, two Raavad strings, or Tosafot R’ Schachter, though.

Q: How many Chulyot can be made with Tosafot strings?

A: Up to 13, which is perfect for GR”A or Chinuch (not R’ Schachter).

Q: Where may I pick up the strings?

A: We would meet locally (your place, coffee shop, etc.) to conduct the transaction.

String Tying Methods

There are many intricate tying methods since, while the Gemara in Menachos mentions the recommendation to incorporate Chulyos (units), it doesn’t specify how, which in turn allows for creativity and Halacha to merge.
