Shatnez is the forbidden mixture of wool and linen in clothing (and a few other items as well). I know it makes no sense. It is something we call, chok, we don’t know the reasoning but it is still halachah (law). (purification by red heifer is also a chok, but there you go)
This can be found in Devarim (Deuteronomy) 22:11 and Vayiqra (Leviticus) 19:19.
note: I may have mispelled shatnez previously … it’s a known fact i can’t spell anything when I need to.
