Felt. Technically pool table felt is baize, not felt. Felt is a cloth that is not woven, and pool table felt is woven baize constructed specifically for pool table use. The two most popular brands are Simonis and Granito, and there are a handful more. Each cloth made has properties that will affect the way the balls react and how long the felt will last.
