Woolen Linen

shatnez . Leviticus 19:19; Deuteronomy 22:11, "of divers sort," related to the Egyptian shoutnes . Such a wool-linen mixture prevailed among the Zabii, associated with idolatrous ceremonies; their priests wore it according to Maimonides. Hence its prohibition in Israel; compare the chemarim (the black attired idolatrous priests' ministers) and those "clothed with strange apparel" (Zephaniah 1:4; Zephaniah 1:8); contrast "the fine linen, clean and white, the righteousness of saints" (Revelation 19:8).
