Why don’t more people wear techelet?

I’ve been wanting to buy techelet and made a post about tying methods on here a few weeks ago and I was wondering, why don’t MORE people use techelet? I spoke to a few people I know and only one of them seemed to be against the idea of using techelet as he considers it yuhara (spiritual haughtiness) but I disagree because it’s a mitzvah DIRECTLY FROM THE TORAH, we even read it ever day in the shema!

He said that “nobody has a longer beard than the Rabbi,” i.e. if nobody in my shul, not even my Rabbi uses it, then I shouldn’t because it will come across as haughty.

So I just want to know, why don’t more people wear techelet? And is it because of possible yuhara?

Thank you in advanced!
