Shu”t Chasam Sofer (O.Ch. 15b-16 ) The Shoel asks the Chasam Sofer about People
who wear woolen clothing if they are allowed to serve as a Shliach Tzibur.
The Shoel heard that Nusach Sefard doesn’t tolerate people who wear woolen clothing.
People who do so (wear wool) are not worthy to daven Nusach Sefard.
In Teshuvah # 15 the Ch. S. ridicules this statement. He says even if the chumra comes
from not wanting to be nichshal in Shatnez, it doesn’t make sense to differentiate between
Nusach Ashkenaz and Sefard.
In Teshuva 16 , Although The Chasam Sofer still disagrees with the Shoel , he treats the Shoel more
respectfully, being the Yismach Moishe confirmed , the disallowing of a Shaliach Tzibbur who wears wool ( to daven Nusach Sefard).
Perhaps we can say this statement originated by a Gadol who might have said, " people
who daven Nusach Sefard don’t wear wool clothing". He was referring to Sefardim who reside
in warm countries.
All he was trying to say, was a fact, Sefardim being they live in warm climate
countries don’t wear wool. ( by doing so they are not nichshal in Shatnez). He never
meant to say , davening Nusach Sefard requires one not to wear wool clothing.
