What If the Threads Become Untwisted?

p. 33 Chapter Eleven   The Strands of the Zizit and how they are Woven

2. If the eight threads of the zizit become untwisted and thus become sixteen threads they remain suitable for use as long as there remains enough twisted thread on each thread to loop around the other threads (kdei aniva). (Shulchan Aruch 11) 
N.B. The eight threads are four strands which are inserted through the hole of the tallit half the length on one side and half the length on the other.
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.
