This remarkably beautiful tallit is delicate, somewhat sheer, and very thin. In fact, upon receipt, we saw just a small heap of watery blue silk. At first, I thought the company sent the wrong item ... but no ... I was just seeing the smallish blue tallit case ... inside of which was the tallit. Several online retailers sell this tallit, but I chose Traditions because (1) the price was the lowest, and (2) Traditions could get it to me by my deadline. Also, the phone rep was quite pleasant.
