In the Bible, Leviticus prohibits the mixing of textiles under the penalty of death. "..neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee." -Leviticus 19:19. While shellfish and pork are prohibited most likely to avoid nasty bouts of trichinosis, I wonder what the purpose of this mandate is. Perhaps it was some form of consumer protection? You pay your last shekel for a halug, you want it to be 100% linen or wool, depending on your needs. Whatever the case may be, the death penalty is a little extreme, don't you think?
Well start gathering the mob and pass out some stones.
75% wool, 25% bamboo, 100% worth being bludgeoned to death.
If that doesn't condemn me, I also loaded up on Rowan Soft Tweed as it was on mad sale.
56% wool, 20% viscose, 14% polyamide, 10% silk. Yeah, that should do me in for sure.
Why does sin feel so soft?
