About Us

Ewes-ful Fiber Arts is a small farm and fiber arts business, located in Westminster, MD. Susan Withnell has been creating hand spun yarns and hand woven items for almost 20 years, often using fiber from her own animals. She raises high percentage rare breed Wensleydale sheep. Wensleydale wool is a british wool that is known as the finest luster long wool in the world. A limited amount of her farm raised Wensleydale wool roving is available for $30/pound. Susan uses this soft, long stapled fiber to spin and hand dye some of her yarns. Knitting with Wensleydale yarn produces a soft garment that will “bloom” as it is warn. The natural sheen to wensleydale yarn is unlike that of most other wool yarns. Susan’s Angora rabbits and alpaca also provide fibers for the handspun yarns. Offered for sale are handspun alpaca, angora, mohair, and camel down/silk blend yarns. The natural colored camel down/silk blend is exquisitely soft and the silk gives the yarn a natural shine. It takes dye beautifully! Hand woven items include scarves, shawls and the very popular mobius. A mobius is a cross between a shawl and an infinity scarf, being one continuous loop, but wide enough to go over your shoulders like a shawl. Mobius can actually be worn doubled as well, emulating a cowl. The Ewes-ful Fiber Arts Mobius have been selling out each year as now designs in chenille, merino/tencel, and wool are created. Also, check out the larger V-shawl, which is created by weaving two long panels together. A weaving demonstration video on our web page shows how this is done! Our web page has links to very detailed and informative weaving and spinning demonstrations, as well as a brief fun video showing my young working border collie Bryn as she moves my sheep. Check them out! Browse the etsy shop, or better yet, contact Susan at or 443-340-1182 for questions or to inquire about purchases directly.
