Characteristics of Our Cloth
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. ISO Certification: Iwan Simonis meets the stringent standards of ISO 9001:2000 certification for the production and sale of our billiard cloths, reinforcing our commitment to continually improving the quality of our products. In addition, Simonis conducts regular dynamometric tests to maintain the tolerances of extension, elasticity, thickness and abrasion of our cloth. These tests ensure the consistent quality of Iwan Simonis cloths, a fact you will be able witness on your table. Simonis cloth is specially woven and sheared specifically so the direction of the ball is not affected by the cloth. Our special manufacturing processes make the difference.
Simonis cloth is smooth and true.
Simonis Cloth starts with very fine combed wool yarn. This long-fiber wool is then tightly-twisted and woven (the worsted wool process) into cloth. Then it is specially sheared perfectly flat and finally finished in a tradition of craftsmanship that our mill in Verviers, Belgium, pioneered and has refined for over three centuries. The result is a beautiful precision cloth that achieves the smoothest, most accurate and most consistent play surface available.
