Announcement   Thank you for visiting Frozen Tundra Fiber Arts by Leigh Dudenhoeffer! Everything in my shop is handmade by me with my own hands and my tools.

I've been a fiber artist and mixed media artist for most of my life. I love all fiber arts and the tools involved in creating it.

I've been making spindles, lucets, looms, and other fiber tools for over 10 years.

Everything in my shop is handmade specifically by me! I'm a one woman operation.

Most of the raw wool I work with comes from local, Wisconsin farms! While I dye some of my own wool and roving, when I don't have the time to dye, I try to buy locally dyed wool roving to cover my dryer balls, I do also buy roving from other Etsy fiber artists that are within the USA.

Orders ship within 48- 72 hours of received payment, unless otherwise noted. Custom orders ship within 1 - 3 weeks of receiving payment. If you are ordering the bulk order of dryer balls (30 count), please allow 1 - 2 weeks processing time, just in case life gets in the way for me and my family.

I bought a set of three of these dryer balls back in 2014. They work wonderfully! Purchase arrived on time. A few months ago our puppy hid one ball that we could not find...until last week when we moved furniture. I also noticed that the other two did seem a bit smaller after three years of consistent use. I am more than happy to have a set of six. I can use three and have three back-ups for any future puppy shenanigans.

These work very well and the colors are vibrant and beautiful. They make me smile every time I open my dryer door.

About

Everything in my shop is handmade by me with my own hands and my tools.

It has taken me awhile for me to notice that there have been changes made on Etsy concerning handmade goods. I've noticed that a lot of sellers are embracing the new change that allows their designs to be made by another party, outside of their shop. I want all of my customers to know that everything in my shop, with the exception of vintage items, is handmade by me, exclusively. I have no helpers. Just me.

My start!
I've been spinning wool since I was about 8 years old. As I got older, I started processing and spinning other fibers. When my husband and I got married, he asked me why I wasn't selling my yarns and hand knits. That got me thinking that his idea was a pretty good one, so I started my first website and began selling on eBay.

I did this for a few years and gradually started selling directly from my website and doing trunk shows. I started my Etsy shop at the direction of a good friend that suggested I might get more exposure.

I've had tons of help, in the form of inspiration and moral support, from my family and friends and I'm grateful to them for it.

My blog can be found here: (http://frozentundrafiberarts.wordpress.com) and for those of you who are into knowing my process for making my dryer balls it can be found here: (http://frozentundrafiberarts.wordpress.com/2014/04/08/this-is-how-my-dryer-balls-are-made/).

Thank you for shopping!

I believe the only way to get the kind of yarn you truly want is to make it yourself.

I've been processing fiber since I was a little girl; spinning yarn for over 40 years; making spindles and other fiber tools for over 10 years; and making jewelry and hair jewelry for over 20 years.

Please do not give dryer balls to your pets to play with as toys. Wool block can occur in any animal who eats the wool and can be dangerous to the pet.
