Are there any sources prior to the Rambam that suggest (even implicitly) that the tekheleth string is only half-dyed?

    In his Birkath Yizhaq, R. Menahem Jenakh points to the Midrash about Qorah, אפשר טלית של מין אחר חוט אחד של תכלת פוטרתו, as a question on the views that require 2 strings – wfb Jun 26 '15 at 14:54

    @wfb Interesting. But that just sounds like a rejection of Rashi and Tosafos' 2 full strings (and possibly of the Rambam's 1/2 string as well)... – Loewian Jun 26 '15 at 15:54

  • Yeah, he points out the Midrash works acc. to both the Rambam and the Ra'avad – wfb Jun 26 '15 at 16:14
