Navy Blue Baize Fabric

Buy a length of thick navy blue baize, the very best surface for cardplay. Made in England from 95% Merino wool and 5% nylon, genuine baize is durable and hardwearing, and also provides the optimum friction when playing card games. Navy blue baize is also used extensively by professional furniture restorers and upholsterers for all sorts of projects including drawer lining, lining wooden boxes and trays, covering instrument cases, recovering antique card tables, covering church doors etc. We sell this fabric in two ways: in pre-cut squares or by the metre. The pre-cut squares are ideal for recovering card tables. If you need a larger piece, we also supply the navy blue baize fabric by the metre. When you buy more than 1 metre, we’ll send a continuous length.

The pre-cut square are available in 81cm (32 inches) and 86cm (34 inches). If you choose to buy a metre, the usable fabric width is a very generous 190cm (if you need wider, look at our range of Extra Wide baizes). Either way, the weight of the fabric is 570gsm (grams per square metre).

An Historic Fabric

Baize is the fabric of choice for sympathetic and authentic interior restorations. An historic fabric, unchanged in appearance, style and feel from its conception, baize adorns many historical and landmark interiors, taking pride of place in stately homes, castles, and great buildings of authority. Our baize, traditionally made in England, ensures authenticity in restoration projects, and is the finishing touch to restoring antiquities to their original beauty.

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 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. It it’s top-quality, such as the fabric we’re selling here which we also use to make our baize bridge cloths, it doesn’t pill and it will look great and last for many years. There really is no comparison between felt and the far superior baize. You can purchase baize from us with complete assurance that you are buying a top-quality fabric.
