Green Felt Square
Buy a square of green British wool felt, pre-cut to the right size for re-covering a standard size card table. Our green felt square, made from wool, measures 95 x 98cm / 37 inches x 38.5 inches. A standard British card table usually measures between 30 and 32 inches square. Felt is great for craft projects and also as an economical fabric for cardplay. If used for recovering your card table, it should be easy to apply and we then recommend using a loose table cloth over the top for playing cards on. This will keep the felt clean and looking smart for a good long time. If used for cardplay, it’s not a hard-wearing fabric so it would only be suitable for occasional use.
Baize or Felt? A (Shortened) Guide to Choosing the Right Fabric
We at Simon Lucas Bridge Supplies have been making top-quality baize table cloths for Bridge for over quarter of a century, so we consider ourselves to be experts on fabrics for card tables and cardplay. There is a lot of confusion about the difference between baize and felt. This isn’t surprising when you search online and find many suppliers describing felt as baize, or a fabric as ‘baize felt’, ‘felt baize’ or even felt/baize as if the two fabrics are the same. They’re not!
It’s important to know whether you’re buying baize or felt, because the two fabrics are very different. Felt is a lightweight fabric made from matted fibres of either wool or a synthetic. Being matted rather than held together in a tight weave, the fibres more easily fluff up or ‘pill’ if rubbed. On the other hand, baize is a strong, dense and hard-wearing fabric made from woven strands of wool.
