Default 3/8" offray ribbon

hi
i just purchased 3 rolls of offray 3/8" ribbon the other day.i started to line a clip and the ribbon is not wide enough. i never had this problem before.2 out of the 3 rolls are like that.

I did have some that were the same way. I usually buy from the web, but I had to buy two rolls at JoAnne's to finish a project. It was only the rolls that I bought there that were not the correct width. Very frustrating!

yep! I've had the problem with Offray and Schiff. UB is my only source for ribbon that is consistently wide enough.

I find it a real pain!! Especially when doing the woven hairbands---looks sloppy and leaves "gaps" when one ribbon is thinner. I've had trouble with TRR swiss dot 3/8 especially. I agree UB was MUCH MUCH MUCH better for dots--and the price! WOW!I think they should post (in mm) if they are thinner...

I have never had that happen. I wonder why that would occur.

I had that happen with a roll I got of Offray at Walmart. I got black, brown and white all at the same time. The brown was narrower than the other two. Still covered the clip, but I had to be very careful to make sure it covered it all since it was VERY close to not being wide enough.

I had the same problem with a roll of black offray from Walmart and Joanne. It is frustrating when trying to make the woven headbands

I did not see a price list for UB. How would I get one of those?
