What Does Reb Shlomo Miller Say About UGGS

ומרדכי יצא מלפני המלך בלבוש מלכות תכלת --- ותכריך בוץ וארגמן

Meforshim ask how could Mordechai walk out with Shatnez? תכלת-ארגמן are wool & תכריך בוץ is linen.

The רמ"א in his ספר מחיר יין* answers that it wasn't one garment made of wool & linen but numerous garments one of them was linen and others wool etc. Halachically he was able to wear them both at the same time. (able  to remove one without the other)

There are many more answers from other Meforshim.


Last week I asked from Mori V'Rabi Harav Hagaon R. Shlomo Miller Shlita re the Shatnez found in "UGGS"

His answer was that for the time being we cannot Aser (forbid) them since the majority (רוב)  have no linen in them.

It also is only שעטנז דרבנן since the shearling is not
שוע טוו ונוז. 

A bystander asked him if perhaps it might be a good idea to have them checked.

Rabbi Miller asked him if the meat he eats is checked for all the 18  טריפות.

We only check the lungs (common to be טריפה) and rely on רוב for the rest that it is kosher.

* The Rema was a refuge in the town of Szydlow and couldn't afford to buy food for משלוח מנות
He sent to his father this Sefer as משלוח מנות
