Filament Entanglement

On one spool of Z-ABS the filament being extracted kept getting caught up by the other filament to the point it would prevent the spool from rotating. Is there some device to keep this from happening?

This particular spool was one of the first black Z-ABS filaments available after the shortage of same. The filament itself is not of a linear construction with straight sections followed by slightly bent areas. It unrolls off in very uneven fashion. The attached pic shows how it was wound onto the spool.
