Simonis pool table felt cloth is incredibly smooth without a felt-like fuzziness. Simonis does not wear like nappy woolen cloth which eventually develops tracks or grooves in the cloth and sheds short fibers that constantly need to be removed. With Simonis, ball spin is consistent and the roll stays straight and true on every shot. Smooth, even threads assure a consistent speed, English and cushion rebound. High wool content and worsted thread construction takes ball spin more consistently and helps reduce ball burns. This precise construction provides outstanding accuracy and consistency which is why Simonis has remained the choice for tournament play.
Simonis pool table felt cloth starts with very fine combed wool yarn. This long-fiber wool is then tightly-twisted and woven (the worsted wool process) into cloth. Then it is specially sheared perfectly flat and finished in a tradition of craftsmanship that the Simonis mill in Verviers, Belgium pioneered and has refined for over three centuries. The result is a beautiful precision cloth that achieves the smoothest, most accurate and most consistent playing surface available. The tight weave prevents penetration of dirt and chalk dust and the twist of the worsted threads allow the fabric to naturally resist liquid spills and stains thus greatly increasing the fabric's life as well as making it easy to clean.
Resisting liquid spills has always been a part of Simonis cloth. Simonis pool table felt cloth naturally repels liquids due to use of the finest worsted wool, an optimal thread count and a proprietary manufacturing process. This keeps liquids from penetrating the cloth and allows spills to be cleaned up quickly without staining or damaging the playfield. Simonis does not chemically treat the cloth because chemical treatments could actually reduce the cloth accuracy and quality.
