38: 27 - And it came to pass in the time of her travail that, behold, twins were in her womb.
28 - And it came to pass, when she travailed, that the one put out his hand: and the midwife took and bound upon his hand a scarlet thread, saying, this came out first.
29 - And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand that, behold, his brother came out: and she said, how hast thou broken forth? This breach is upon thee: therefore his name was called Pharez.
30 - And afterward came out his brother that had the scarlet thread upon his hand: and his name was called Zarah.

Do not forget the testimony can be found in religious books which again are a highly subjective matter of beliefs and ideas. You will see many people wearing Red String jewelry that are made of wool or some special thread. Red String jewelry is said to possess mystical powers, but the questions stands.
