M175 nozzle picks up fuzz on wipe

My M175 toolhead has started consistently picking up “fuzzies” from the wiper pad, even if I make sure it is scrupulously clean beforehand. I replaced the the wiper pad with a fresh one and it’s still happening.

The HE toolhead I have doesn’t pick up fuzzies (from the same pad) and is using the same wipe GCODE, however I do have a silicone sock on my HE.

Has anyone run into this before? Any easy solutions? If I don’t manage to knock the fuzzy off before the probe sequence starts it fails / levels terribly for obvious reasons.
