The Many Uses of Baize

Baize has many uses making it a highly practical material. Most importantly it is made wholly or primarily from wool. A fibre that has been revered and used by man for millennia due to its durability and warmth.

The baize we stock is all heritage grade and made in the UK using strict quality controls. It has a tight weave making it useful for a wide variety of applications.

For example the standard and extra wide baizes we stock are all made using a blend of 95% British wool 5% nylon. Subsequently making these baizes useful for upholstering furniture and using to cover snooker, pool, and card tables.

The softer, lighter 100% Merino wool baizes are ideally suited to fashion and textiles. Their softness means they are suited to making clothing, costumes, uniforms and hats.

We’ve carefully curated the baizes we stock into exampe “uses”. These are ideas or broad areas where certain baizes are best suited. Hopefully this will help you identify a baize for your own particular use.
