Shaatnez Alert: Canvas Ugg Shoes
Linen has been found in CANVAS Ugg shoes that are listed as containing wool. The vinyl and leather Uggs seem to be fine. Footwear that contains a mixture of wool and linen normally lists the wool, but not the linen. Federal regulations do not require the listing of thread and other “unimportant” materials – which may be linen. It is advisable to ask your Rav or Shaatnez expert for guidance before buying footwear that lists wool as a component.
