Tzitzit on a blanket

undefined

Rabbi Jonathan Blass

9 Cheshvan 5763
Question
When one sleeps during the day, does the blanket or sheet need to have tzitzit because it is a four cornered garmet and if not - why not?
Answer
It does not need Tzitzit (Shulchan Aruch Orach Chayim 18, 2). Some say the reason is because the main use of the blanket and sheet is at night; others explain that only something warn as a garment needs Tzitzit (Mishna Berura 18, 8)
