 13:48
13:47 [This is the law] when a garment has the mark of the leprous curse. It can be woolen cloth, linen cloth,
Vehabeged ki-yihyeh vo nega tsara'at beveged tsemer o beveged pishtim.
13:48 linen or wool [threads meant for] the warp or woof, leather, or anything made of leather.
O vishti o ve'erev lapishtim velatsamer o ve'or o bechol-melechet or.



Commentary:

woolen...
  Only on wool and linen (Kelayim 9:1; Yad, Tumath Tzaraath 13:1). Moreover, the cloth must be white (Negaim 11:3; Yad, Tumath Tzaraath 12:10).

threads meant for...
  (Negaim 11:8; Yad, Tumath Tzaraath 13:8; HaKethav VeHaKabbalah; Ralbag). It is also true if the warp is white and the woof colored, or vice versa, and the visible part of the weave is discolored (Negaim 11:4; Yad, Tumath Tzaraath 12:10). However, if the warp is wool or linen, and the woof is another material, or vice versa, then the garment cannot become unclean; (Tosefta, Negaim 5:3 Yad, Tumath Tzaraath 13:3).
