Mixtures of Fibers

Question: Does the Torah forbid all mixtures of fibers?

Answer: The “shatnez” mentioned in Lev.19:19 is defined more precisely in Deut.22:11. The prohibition applies only to mixtures of wool and linen; mixtures involving other types of natural or synthetic fibers are permitted.
