For many traditional tallit buyers, the various types of black-striped talleisim appear quite similar. To help our customers choose the right traditional wool tallit, here is a brief comparison.
Acrylan - As the name implies, the Acrylan is made of an acrylic fabric. This is a good option for those on a tight budget. It looks much like other traditional wool black-striped tallits, but has the Tzitzit Blessing on the atara (neckband) and decorated corner patches.
Traditional Wool Tallit - The time-tested traditional wool tallit design with black striping and silver or gold pinstripes or black striping and satiny white pinstripes.
Prima - Top quality weave. Comes with a standard white atara. To add a different atara, go to the Tallit Atara page. Options for lining, side bands and/or middle band available. Made by Talitania.
Prima A.A. - Top quality weave. Comes with a standard white atara. To add a different atara, go to the Tallit Atara page. Made by Mishkan Hatchelet.
Kalil - Similar to the Prima A.A. but 30% lighter. Light on your shoulders, folds compact, and narrower, meaning less tallit fabric bunched up on your shoulders.
Tashbetz - Box weave that resists slipping. Not shown above. Refer to our Lightweight Tallit page.
Hamefoar - Luxurious textured weave that also resists slipping, but smoother than the Tashbetz. Made by Mishkan Hatchelet.
Malchut - A popular alternative to Hamefoar, but slightly more economical. Made by Talitania.
Hamefoar Prestige - Similar fabric, but slightly heavier than Hamefoar. Comes with lining and side bands which, combined with the slightly heavier fabric, lend Hamefoar Prestige a heftier feel. Striping pattern is darker and thicker. Features unique interlaced fringes.
Shachar - New tallit made by Mishkan Hatchelet. Unique weave and super-dark navy striping. Double-knotted fringes.
Turkish - The Kmo Turkish features a heavyweight fabric and thick striping. The Echt Turkish is the heaviest traditional wool tallit made, and features unique, interlaced fringes. Both come with cotton lining and sidebands. Not shown above. Refer to our Chassidic Tallis page.
Carmel - Black striping with silver pinstripes. Designed to look like a luxurious hand-woven tallit at a fraction of the cost.
