Default Craft store marabou vs. TRR or RABOM

I've bought marabou one time and it was from TRR. It is nice quality but was wondering if I could just get some from Joanns or Michaels. How is the quality from the craft store? Sometimes I just want to run out and buy something rather than wait for an online order of ribbon. Plus I hate to pay for shipping.

I just bought some at HL today. I think it is very fluffy and full. I also went to Michael's and looked at theirs. It is much thinner than what HL carries.

I have not bought marabou from TRR or RABOM so I can't give my opinion on them but I have bought from Hobby Lobby and Michaels. I agree with the above posts - I did NOT like the one from Michaels but I have been very happy with the marabou from HL.

I will warn you though: Sometimes I do have trouble finding the color I need at HL. I usually don't have trouble finding white or black but the other colors can be 'iffy'.
