Default Quality of United Beads Ribbons

Hi Ladies!

How is the quality of UB ribbons compared to RABOM? I ordered some ribbons from RABOM and I really like the thickness of the 7/8. But I know RABOM has been quite a pain in terms of quality lately.

Are UB ribbons anything like RABOM?

Appreciate your feedback!

The UB ribbons I sampled was very floppy and not at all like RABOM or RR. I would think the smaller 3/8 would be okay to work with for clippies or woven headbands where the lack of stiffness doesn't matter as much. When I tried to make a boutique bow with 1.5" UB it was very loose and floppy, didn't care for it myself.

I use a lot of the 3/8, 5/8, and 7/8. The 7/8 makes good pinwheel bows but as far as making boutique bows it is prob to flimsy. If that makes since. But the prices are great.

I actually felt it before I bought it, but I haven't made anything with the bigger sized ribbon. Hopefully the floppy one was a bad batch.

Thanks ladies!

I am planning on getting 3/8 and 7/8 only. I dislike floppy ribbons cos the whole boutique bow would just collapse. Guess I better order from RABOM or TRR.

Dang! I was hoping to save a couple of $$.
