Shatnez Laboratory Finds Shatnez In Baseball Cap

(Thursday, July 21st, 2011)

Someone brought to the Monsey Shatnez Laboratory six baseball caps. Among them was a Chicago Bears cap made in the Dominican Republic of 100% wool. Inside the rim, a black linen canvas/tape was used as reinforcement.

The cap has a tag certifying it as officially licensed by the NFL. Although some of the other hats were similarly marked, none had the linen reinforcement.

YWN has no further information regarding possible Shatnez in baseball caps – consult you local Shatnez Laboratory, or local Rov.
