Default Rabom

Has anyone bought the 3/8'' black from them recently? I got a 20yd spool a couple of weeks ago, and I noticed it was super stiff and rubbery and couldn't really use it for bows (I can use it for woven bands). Well I got another 5yd spool this week hoping it would be softer and usable for bows but nope it's the same way! Did anyone else get ribbon like this? I love RABOM, so I'm not making a big deal about it...just waiting a month or so before ordering it again. Just wondering if I got a bad pick of the batch both times or if it was all like that.

Thanks! It seems to be only the 3/8'' black, the rest of mine have all been fine except for them! It's so weird.

Oh really? I think you'll love them. I buy 95% of my ribbon from them! It's somewhat stiff (but great for keeping shape) and soft at the same time...so it's perfect for bows.

Yes, my black 3/8 was almost like plastic. I used it for korkers so it held it's shape well but I prefer a softer more fabric like ribbon!!! Uhg, oh well, like you said the rest of the ribbon was fine

I think mine is that way too. I think I bought black the other week. I kinda like it because I make korkers with it, but I know you are making bows.

I'm sure most people who make korkers like theirs to be soft, but I tend to like the little bit stiffer curls. I really have had a great experience overall with RABOM. I think i've ordered from them like 7 or 8 times in the last month or 6 weeks.

Yea I love RABOM! I was looking at my order history and cringed when I added up how much I've spent since January! I don't really make korkers unless I get the pre korkered ribbon from them. I hate curling ribbon! But yea I need it softer for bows...which it usually is! Oh well atleast I can still use it for woven headbands....and bow holders.

I sent an email a while back to RABOM because some of the striped ribbon I got was stretched weird and didn't lay flat. It was also really flimsy. Here is the reply I got
With the way the manufacturer makes the stripe ribbon there are slight variations in the texture each time. Unfortunately this is a process that we can’t control, so we can’t guarantee an exact likeness with each lot of ribbon. Thanks again for your concern, and have a wonderful day!
