Baal Hanefesh

Baal Hanefesh 250 1111 rhecht

This uses a variation of Raavad tying. It’s al pi Kabbala 7-7-7-7 but the second chulya is all white, since the Techeiles ones are Domeh L’Rakia/Shamayim, and the remainder makes it add up to 28 which has some Koach. Some Yemenite Jews will also do 28 (even though 26 is YKVK) since there is some…

Vilna Gaon (GR”A) 7 Method 720 960 rhecht

From Ptil Tekhelet: This method defines a chulyah as a group of three twists.
