Hang Thread

Hang Thread — This is the result of a weaver failing to clip the excess thread after repairing a broken end and the cloth inspector failing to remove it in the final inspection. The thread on the face of the fabric restricts the penetration of dye into the fabric beneath it resulting in a light streak.
