Frozen Tundra Fibers Has Outlasted Its Impetuous Pompacity?

On February 1, 2020, Frozen Tundra Fibers became everything I no longer wanted. The name was impetuous and pompass when I named it over 15 years ago and I loved it. I don’t love it any more.

I’ve learned through introspection and reflection that what it’s always been is an amazing odyssey traveling through all of the different fibers I’ve worked with over the years; learning how to to dye with natural dyed and commercial dyed (which I’m still learning and experimenting with);¬† the wonderful sheep farmers I’ve met during that time, some of which have become family, and some dear friends; the many farms I’ve visited and still do when I get out there; and the processes I’ve learned and the new ones I’m learning.

It’s moving forward and I decided I want to move forward with it.

Without further ado or pompacity (hehe), I hereby announce the rebranding of Frozen Tundra Fibers. The new name as of February 1, 2020 is Mrs D’s Fiber Odyssey!!!

Get your yarn on!

Here’s the follow-up video about how I make my dryer balls!

I know I promised to do a video of me making dryer balls, but when I get hella busy, I don’t do much blogging or video recording. I wrote a post which was pretty much a brief tutorial on how I make my dryer balls (https://mrsdsfiberodyssey.wordpress.com/2014/04/08/this-is-how-my-dryer-balls-are-made/). So, after several months of being super busy and finally moving into a nice studio space, I am now, finally making good on my promise.

My new studio space has made a huge difference for me in production!  The laminate flooring makes it super easy to clean up after and God knows I can be very messy at times. It has tons of natural light, which I crave and need in order to create beautiful woolly and fibery things.

When you’ve finished watching the vid, you can scroll down and take a peek at all the fibery things I’ve been creating!

I know I’ve not blogged in awhile!

I’ve not blogged in awhile because the farmers market season got into full swing and I’ve been super busy creating things, restocking the things that do sell, and working hard at beefing up my displays. I’ve not had the best luck with displays and I really do hate putting up and taking down my tent. Natural lighting is what suits my fiber products best and I would prefer to display in natural lighting.

Now that I’ve taken a few weeks off, I’ll try and whip up a post sometime tomorrow about my latest adventures in the wonderful world of card-weaving!!

Til then, get some fiber and get spinning!
