Simonis Cloth – The Truest Playing
Simonis looks, feels, and wears differently than any other billiard cloth.
Simonis offered the first worsted cloth for billiards. Why worsted cloth? Worsted construction means that no short fibers can be released from the cloth to form "pills" or fuzz-balls that have to be removed from the playfield to allow the ball to roll straight. Simonis cloth is incredibly smooth without felt-like fuzziness. Simonis does not wear like nappy woolen cloth, which eventually develops tracks or grooves in the cloth while shedding short fibers that constantly need to be removed. With Simonis, ball spin is consistent, and the roll stays straight and true on every shot.

Woolen vs. Worsted... no comparison
Simonis Worsted Wool Cloth
In Simonis cloth, the short fibers are removed from the yarn. The yarn is twisted before weaving, producing a tough, smooth, level cloth. On your table, it's flat and true, without a nap to shed, compress, or pill.
Standard Woolen Cloth
Long and short fibers are woven together to make a bulky yarn with a fuzzy surface. On your table, it will pill and shed, affecting ball speed and direction.
The hallmark of Simonis cloth is its perfect accuracy and precision.
Smooth, even threads assure a consistent speed, English, and cushion rebound. High wool content 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 for generations.
