Broken Pick — This description best suits the appearance of the defect; however, this is not a broken pick. The check in this fabric is achieved filling-wise by three picks of filling in one shed; that is, the shed stays open for three picks. The filling must be trapped by each selvage while the shed is open. In this instance, the tape selvage failed to trap the filling allowing it to be jerked back into the body of the fabric, resulting in two picks missing for a portion of the width.
