Ombre means that the color changes from light to dark across the width
of the ribbon, giving it a beautiful sheen which is impossible to adequately
display on the Internet. The color on ombre ribbon blends and changes in shifting light.
Also, a thin wire is trapped in each edge of the ribbon. The wire can be pulled to gather
or ruffle the ribbon into a flower. The wire also is useful to shape the ribbon into bows.
The ribbon used to be available in a dizzying array of colors. Over the years,
however, French manufacturers have reduced the color options. Those available on a continuing basis are shown below.
Quilter's Fancy still has a backstock of some older colors. When these
run out, they may be gone for good. Call toll free 866-953-0722 for availability.
