1 Yoma 6a - Avnet on Sun Mar 02, 2014 1:59 pm

Here and several later places, the gemara brings a disagreement about the avnet of a regular cohen. Everyone agrees that the cohen gadol's avnet was shatnez, the question is whether the same is true of the avnet of a regular cohen.

This week's parsha is Pikudei, and I noted with interest the section on making the avnet, and comparing it with parshas Tetzaveh. There is the command, and it says
וְעָשִֹיתָ מִצְנֶפֶת שֵׁשׁ וְאַבְנֵט תַּעֲשֶֹה מַעֲשֵֹה רֹקֵם: מ   וְלִבְנֵי אַהֲרֹן תַּעֲשֶֹה כֻתֳּנֹת וְעָשִֹיתָ לָהֶם אַבְנֵטִים
Doesn't say anything about shatnez, just מעשה רקם - embroidered work. It does mention a separate command for the regular cohanim.

In this week's parsha:
כז   וַיַּעֲשֹוּ אֶת־הַכָּתְנֹת שֵׁשׁ מַעֲשֵֹה אֹרֵג לְאַהֲרֹן וּלְבָנָיו: כח   וְאֵת הַמִּצְנֶפֶת שֵׁשׁ וְאֶת־פַּאֲרֵי הַמִּגְבָּעֹת שֵׁשׁ וְאֶת־מִכְנְסֵי הַבָּד שֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר: כט   וְאֶת־הָאַבְנֵט שֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר וּתְכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתוֹלַעַת שָׁנִי מַעֲשֵֹה רֹקֵם כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה ה' אֶת־מֹשֶׁה
Note that the כתנות are in the plural, for both Aharon and his sons: they are the same. The מזנפת is singular, just for Aharon, and his sons get מגבעות, and both get מכסיים. Then the avnet is in the singular, doesn't say for whom, and here it adds all the materials, making it shatnez.

I would say that leaves the question open.
