Choosing a fabric to cover or renovate a poker table requires care and consideration. Here’s what to look for when selecting a fabric.
The key quality to look for in a piece of fabric to cover a poker table is durability. Poker not only involves cards being placed on the surface of the table but also poker chips, players drinks, food and the like.
Traditionally British Baize is the fabric of choice for playing card games on. The main reason for this is that baize grips cards well when they are being dealt. Added to this baize is very hardwearing. Firstly, quality British baize has a high – 95% plus – wool content, and secondly, British baize is tightly woven.
Resistant to Fire, Water and Stains
High wool content fabrics are naturally resitant to fire, water and stains.
Wool has been used extensively by the military for clothing – particularly on ships – as it will smolder rather than burn and melt.
Wool is naturally water repellent – sheep are tough creatures – and wool fibres in baize cause water to pearl and bead before slowly soaking in. This gives you enough time to wipe up any spillages
As with water wool is also stain resistant, which means no scotch guarding which is bad for you and the planet.
