Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 שַׁעַטְנֵז noun masculine mixed stuff (perhaps of Egyptian origin; Kn derives from Coptic saht, woven, + nudj, false (Peyron Lex 224. 133), and thinks originally שַׁעַטְנֹז; ᵐ5 has κίβδηλος spurious); — a kind of cloth forbidden for garments; defined Deuteronomy 22:11 by צֶמֶר וּפִשְׁתִּים יַחְדָּו, and Leviticus 19:19 (H) by כִּלְאַיִם.

I. שׁעל (√of following; Late Hebrew שַׁעַל, deep, depth, of sea; Aramaic שְׁעוֺלָא, שָׁעֳלָא, = Biblical Hebrew [שֹׁעַל]).

Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

שַׁעַטְנֵז a kind of cloth or garment made of two kinds of thread, linen and woollen, Leviticus 19:19 (where there is added כִּלְאַיִם), and Deuteronomy 22:11, where the words are, “thou shalt not put on shatnes, woollen and linen together.” LXX. κίβδηλον, i.e. something adulterated. The origin is very obscure. Those proposed by Bochart (Hieroz. i. p. 486) and Buxtorf (Lex. Chald. p. 2483), who sought for an etymology in the Phœnicio-Shemitic languages, are very improbable; nor are those quite satisfactory which are given by Jablonski (Opuscc. ed. te Water, i. p. 294) and Forster (De Bysso Antiquorum, p. 92), who regard this word as being taken from the Coptic, and that it should be written ϣⲟⲛⲧⲛⲉⲥ (i.e. byssus fimbriatus).
