What is "Picking" - Definition & Explanation

a) The second of the three basic motions in weaving, in which the weft is passed through the warp shed.

b) The rectification of the face and the back of a carpet after manufacture, including insertion of missing tufts, replacement of incorrect ones and repair of broken yarns in the backing (local mending).

c) A process carried out before the final stage of fabric finishing to remove, by hand, any contamination (such as kemp (see kemp fibres), wrong fibre, coloured hair, etc.) that has not been removed by previous processing.

NOTE:

This process is carried out in particular during the finishing of suitings, face-finished fabrics and cream or off-white fabrics.

The effect of ink being too tacky and lifting fibers out of the paper. Shows up as small white dots on areas of colour.
