Types of Cloth
Legacy offers two types of cloth for use with our pool tables, Napped Wool or Worsted Wool. Both are made from wool and contain a percentage of nylon. Legacy Billiards recommends worsted wool because of it’s durability, speed, and easy maintenance. All Legacy pool tables include FREE Napped Cloth in a choice of four colors: napped desert, black, Legacy red and basic green.
Napped cloth is woven with thread made up of long and short fibers twisted together to make billiard cloth with a fuzzy surface. Napped is less expensive and shows chalk marks less because of the thicker weave that allows the chalk dust to settle in the cloth. Napped cloth also tends to pill which slows the ball. Napped cloth is less durable.
Worsted cloth is our upgraded quality cloth. This cloth is woven with thread that is combed to remove the short fibers. This makes the billiard cloth smoother and more consistent. Worsted is more expensive and the balls run faster with a consistent speed. Worsted cloth is more durable. Each thread is treated with DuPont™ Teflon® fabric protector to protect your investment from accidental spills.
