Lightweight Wool Talleisim, Tallis
TWK Kal Kanesher Wool Tallis NON SLIP
This is a light weight tallis. It has the same fringes, lining, and thick strings as the Tallis Hamefoar but the fabric is thinner (see picture in gallery comparing the two fabrics). This is what you want when the temperature is really high or if you travel and you don’t want to take up extra space. Otherwise you might like the heavier cut of wool that the Tallis Hamefoar is woven from. On the other hand, some people prefer all of the time to have a tallis which is less noticeable. Rest assured that light weight does not mean short on features. You can see how the fringes are the same in the picture that compares them side by side. They both come with lining and a side band. The corners feel as reinforced and solid in the light weight tallis as in the full weight version.SKU: n/a

Lightweight Shabbos Tallis Hamefoar
The Lightweight Shabbos Tallis HaMefoar prayer shawl is an elegant pure wool tallis with a little more weight than a regular lightweight tallis. Its unique weave pattern creates a slightly rough surface which keeps the tallis from slipping while being worn. Its wool is slightly heavier and more substantial than a true lightweight tallisim that are offered but it is still a good alternative to a full weight tallis when you need to keep cool, or if you need a less bulky tallis for traveling but you don’t want to sacrifice the solid feeling of a tallis with lining and side bands.
This prayer shawl includes lining, a side band and corner reinforcements. The lining is made from white cotton and is sewn on the inside upper part of the tallis helps keep dirt and sweat off of the wool and makes it more comfortable to wear. The corner reinforcements are made of the same wool as the main body of the tallis and are perfectly integrated into it. The tallis corners are made of reinforced wool fabric. The fringes of the tallis are decorated with a double knot and double fringe providing it with beauty and elegance.
Also included are reinforced side bands on both ends of the atara which increase the lifespan of the tallis.SKU: n/a
