What about the fringe?

p. 34 Chapter Eleven   The Strands of the Zizit and how they are Woven

6. If the fringe of the garment (known in Arabic as the Sfifia) is wide one should not insert the ziziot in it as the Torah says, '...on the corners of your garments...' and this fringe is not considered an integral part of the garment; however it does count as part of the distance the hole may be spaced from the edge, both for the minimum distance (kesher gudal) as well as for the maximum (three gudalim) since the hole is in the actual garment. (ibid.)  It is however correct to measure the minimum distance excluding the fringe in such a way that the hole will be within the maximum distance including the fringe. (Rema, ibid.)

Note from us: Please consult your own rabbi to find out what to do - these are for learning purposes only.
As quoted from:
Shulchan HaMelech, a Kitzur Shulchan Aruch in 3 volumes as compiled by Maharan HaRav Shmuel Laniado z'al, 1923 with the supplement "Al HaShulchan" containing various opinions compiled by Ezra Basri, Chief Justice of the District Court, Jerusalem in 1992.

We would like to dedicate this learning for the speedy and complete recovery of two people: our friends' 5-year-old son, Joseph Benjamin, son of Ireneusz Khrystof, diagnosed in April with ALL leukemia, and a longtime friend of the family, Frank, son of Joseph, having thyroid surgery soon. Please have them in mind when studying. If you would like updates on their progress, please let me know so I can tell you when I find out from either or both.
