Tzitzit Sizing Table

Choosing the right size for a tallit katan can be confusing, especially since there are two different sizing systems (Israel and US), and in Israel, wool tallit katan and cotton tallit katan sizing differs.

Note that in the table below, each line is essentially the same size all the way across the line. For example:

Size 8 wool = Size 5 cotton = Size 20 wool = Size 20 cotton
