Both Poles are separate objects, though hand animated, no physics.
So, not really an answer on "tethering two items of soft cloth"...
Here is a little "how to do":
What i did:
Props --> Physics Props --> Softcloth Props --> Curtain
Delete one of the curtains…
Delete Pick 2 & 3
Remove Animation of Pick 1
Make both “Curtains”dummy
Select"major" Curtain, scale till it looks like a rope…
Made Poles out of Cylinder…
Detach Pick 1 & 4 and link each to a pole
Animate Poles as desired
Make Picks dummy…
In the “how to do”it’s done roughly, do it more accurate.
In the final project, the “Cloth” has an optimized opacity map and a "rope" diffuse map.
