Tzitzit: What To Wear: Which Garments Require Tzitzit

A garment or cloth requires tzitzit if:
  • Worn by a male 13 years old or above,
  • Contains at least 51% natural fibers (cotton, wool, silk, etc.), and
  • Has four corners in which two corners are normally behind you and the other two are normally in front of you while wearing it (A shawl will not normally need tzitzit).
Note It is the widespread custom to begin wearing tzitzit at the age of chinuch—typically about three years old but this can vary by child.
