Knud Leem

knud leem "When a coastal Sami lies in his hut, or a mountain Sami lies asleep in his tent, his bottom quilt is a widespread reindeer hide... On top he will have a fur bedcover and a thick wool blanket... A husband and his wife, their children and servants will all lie quite naked, and close to the ground, even during the most severe chill of the winter."
