Looking for opinions on best lightweight “no-slip” Tallis.
I find that the various tallis companies come out with a new tallis fabric weave every few years and market it as “lighter” or “softer” etc. etc.
Anyone find that their tallis really stays put? (and one that lasts would be nice as well).January 25, 2022 8:57 pm at 8:57 pm #2054675
Just add a little glue to any fabric Talis.
Much more effective.January 26, 2022 12:30 am at 12:30 am #2054720Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
if you wear it long enough, it will become thinner and lighter. Try your grandfather’s tallis.January 26, 2022 12:47 pm at 12:47 pm #2054890
The so-called “Kemo” tallis is really tightly woven lightweight wool (not sure if Egyptian or North African) but from what I’ve heard, actually stays on like velcro. Some order a size larger to avoid having any tallis slip off…January 26, 2022 2:06 pm at 2:06 pm #2054971
Oddly, in all the years I’ve rarely seen someone’s Talis fall off in Shul.
It’s been working the good ole fashioned way for thousands of years. No need to reinvent the wheel.January 26, 2022 2:06 pm at 2:06 pm #2055049ChiamLeibParticipant
Agree with @Godolhoadorah I have a “Kemo Turkish” as my Shabbos Tallis and its really great. It costs a little more but is worth the buy.January 26, 2022 2:10 pm at 2:10 pm #2055056
“Oddly, in all the years I’ve rarely seen someone’s Talis fall off in Shul.

well that’s a pretty odd comment.
you dont see the talis fall off because the guys are constantly readjusting it. Hence the question. And if you say you haven’t seen that either then so what? How many guys would notice something like that.January 26, 2022 3:39 pm at 3:39 pm #2055086
“How many guys would notice something like that.”
Wearing a Talis 7 days a week, 354 days a (Jewish) year, you’d surely notice it on yourself, if not on the dozens of other Talis-donning men (and Yekkishe/Sefardishe bochorim) you’re with every single morning.January 26, 2022 3:41 pm at 3:41 pm #2055091
if that’s the case then i can only wonder why you’ve been davening byichidusJanuary 26, 2022 4:27 pm at 4:27 pm #2055102RedlegParticipant
“…not sure if Egyptian or North African”. Um, Egypt is in North Africa.January 26, 2022 4:28 pm at 4:28 pm #2055103Avram in MDParticipant

Try wearing a real tallis instead of the little Reform scarf thingy, and you’ll see it does slip off the shoulders a lot.

“Egypt is in North Africa…”
Ask most Egyptians if they are a “North African” country and you will get a very vigorous pushback locating themselves in the “Middle East”. Indeed, they would be more comfortable if you just said they lived in a suburb of Eilat versus having any real connection with most of the African continent.January 26, 2022 5:55 pm at 5:55 pm #2055151
Also, perhaps check with anyone you know in the Shuvu cult and find out what brand of Tallis their now imprisoned leader wore 24×7 while being chased across 4 continents by Israeli prosecutors. I don’t think I ever saw his tallis slip off.
