What is baize and where can I buy it?

Baize is the felt-like fabric used for drawer linings, card tables and snooker tables. Most fabric shops will have to order it in specially. It's quite expensive so we're looking for the online supplier who offers the best value for money. We'll add a link when we've found them!
