Pool table felt is usually made of wool or nylon blends, making it soft to the touch but with just enough traction to prevent pool balls from sliding off track. Most pool felts come in standard green and other popular pool table colors (like red or brown).
Types of Pool Table Felts
Kinds of Pool Table Felts include the following:
Wool felt is the traditional pool table cover. It has been used for over 400 years. It is thick and dense, allowing for fast ball movement.
Wool-nylon felt is not as dense or thick as wool felt. It is soft yet tough. It allows slow and less accurate ball movement.
Choosing Pool Table Felts (Buying tips)
Evenness: Choose pool table felt that does not feel knobby in some places as this defect can affect your game and playing style.
