* According to the Shulchan Aruch, only wool (and linen) must have tzitzits according to Torah law, which means wearing a tallit katan made of cotton would only be at a Rabbinical level. Many Ashkenazim wear a cotton tallit katan because they rely on the Rema, who disagrees, saying all fabrics require tzitzits according to Torah law. Despite the Rema’s ruling, the Mishnah Berura notes that wool is preferable in any case.
