Soiled Filling

Soiled Filling — This description best suits the illustrated defect; however, this is package dyed filling and what appears as oily slubs actually is dye scum or crystallized dyestuff from the outside of the dye package. On a Sulzer loom, which feeds pick and pick from four dye packages simultaneously, this can continue as a general condition for a number of yards.
