Halocho #565 - Using wool and linen

One cannot cover oneself with Sha'atnez (wool & linen).

One may not sit on Sha'atnez.

If a wagon or convertible has a Sha'atnez cover then one has to be careful not to lean on the cover.

Hand towels, beach towels, tablecloths, pillows, blankets, slippers, mattresses and curtains all have to be Sha'atnez free.

However, the Parochet covering the Aaron HaKodesh can have Sha'atnez, as nobody would warm themselves with it.

One may create, own and sell Sha'atnez.
