Commentaires : This skeiner is located in the Doucet House at the Farmer's Bank of Rustico site. Built around 1770, the Doucet house is the oldest house in the Rustico area, and possible on all of Prince Edward Island. The residence was originally situated on Grand-Pere (now Cymbria) and was inhabited continuously by descendents of the Doucet families until 1982, when it was purchased as a summer residence. Soon it was offered by the owner for removal from his land or was slated to be torn down. The Farmer's Bank of Rustico moved the house to their site and began a full restoration in 2003. The Doucet house now houses a collection of early Acadian artefacts. Swifts or Skeiners are used to hold skeins of yarn. Swifts often had an adjustable diameter so that it can hold skeins of many sizes, and rotates around a central rod. A swift allows for easy balling of a skein of yarn without the yarn getting tangled and knotted. This swift was locally made on Prince Edward Island. Many Acadian families passed down from generation to generation the tools and techniques for textile working, this piece may easily have been used by generations of Acadian's.
