What do you mean "a green cloth"? You mean when illuminated with white light the cloth appears green?

A green cloth reflects both blue and yellow light, so if you shine "yellow light" on it (ie light where all other wavelengths have been removed, including blue obviously) the cloth would only reflect yellow light and thus appear yellow.
