Hi, I'm having real trouble finding organza ribbons that come in more than one shade e.g. one ribbon that blends from one shade into another?  (tried ebay but only shows individual colours) - Can anyone help me?

Many thanks, Ali

There is a website JKM Ribbons.  I'm not sure if they have what you want, but it would be worth looking into.

Here Ali, try Ribbon Oasis bear_original  http://www.ribbonoasis.co.uk/index.php?cPath=1_38

They have a really wide range of sheer ribbons and there are some rainbow-y ones which might do the trick? They're UK based too bear_original

Ali: I think you are looking for variegated organza ribbon right? If so here is a website that may help:

So if this is what you are looking for, do another google search under "variegated ribbon".

Ali I once found some of this ribbon in a market stall in Yorkshire, it is going back about 6 months, they haven't had any since, it was about half an inch wide and in colours from pink/lilac through to blues and greens.  It might be worth checking out market stalls in your area.  Will keep my eye out for you too.

In the UK I remember that www.nostalgiaribbon.com has superb ribbons. They stock lots of ribbon...but you need to email him as I am sure he keeps the wider stuff too.
Or try the  pièce de résistance of ribbon shops..they do mail order.

OMG!  I have such a stash of ombre' ribbon!  I bought scads of it when a local craft store was going out of business.  Are you looking for a small amount for a particular bear or an entire roll?  What color, width, etc?  If you just need enough for one bear and have a color in mind, I can check the stash.  All of mine has wired edges.  Every time we go to a store with ribbon, my children groan.  I tell them, I'm just going to look!  Yeah, right!  bear_happy

Awwwww Alison thats really sweet of you  bear_flower 

I'm not sure what I'm after yet, just wanted to find a supplier and get some ideas.  I bought a lovely Charlie bear a few months ago that came with a beautiful ribbon that went through all the brown shades, but it didn't suit him, so I took it off and replaced it with some rope and a rusty key (much better).  I was just wondering where I could get more of this style of ribbon from. 

Thanks again, Ali xxx
(nice to meet another Alison  :hug: )
