Dropped Picks

Dropped Pick — This is the result of the filling insertion mechanism on a shuttleless loom not holding, thus releasing the filling yarn too soon. This allows the yarn to snap into the body, leaving a missing pick part way across the fabric. The released yarn then weaves into the fabric in a tangled mass and appears as a kinked or wild yarn.
