Pool Table Bed Cloth Selection

When it comes to buying a pool table, the bed cloth selection is arguably the most important decision to make. The first thing to know regarding the selection process is that pool table bed cloth is called by many different names like billiard fabric, pool table felt, billiard cloth, and green, among other things. No matter what name they call it, they all refer to the same type of product.

Just as it comes with so many names, there are a number of things that need to be considered when selecting a bed cloth for your pool table.


In the pool table selection process, you'll soon learn that a bed cloth comes in a range of different thicknesses. The thickness of the felt can help with cushioning and will dictate how smoothly the balls run across the surface of the pool table.


The color of the bed cloth can do much to change the appearance of the pool table, making it appear larger or smaller than it really is. The décor of your game room needs to be considered during color selection to achieve a cohesive look.


The tightness of the weave plays an important role in the quality of a pool table bed cloth. A bed cloth with a looser weave will wear down faster because there is less material used in the weave.


You will notice a significant difference in the roll and speed of the ball between a high-end and a low-end bed cloth. The quality and percentage of wool in the blend and the finishing process are the main factors that determine cloth speed. When both are done right, you get a smoother and more precise fabric that allows for faster ball speed and increased accuracy.
