Default What type of ribbon to make korkers??

I have bought my dowel, and starch spray and can't wait to give it a try making korker ribbon, however my question is does the ribbon have to be gros grain ribbon.
Looking at most of the korkers on here use the gros grain ribbon, however I have satin ribbon and some other sorts and wanted to know if you can use these, or what works best.
I'm new to bow making and haven't even made a bow yet, but want to jump straight in to making korkers!!!!!

I have only used grosgrain but my sis in law makes korkers all the time with other types, she just barely made some for our 4th of July celebration with satin ribbon, though she still uses the 3/8 size

As long as it's polyester and will seal on the ends (lighter test) then you can kork it. I have korker sheer, velvet, satin, grosgrain, etc. Some does better than others. Just have fun!
