Whether it's Gamla Uppsala or Valsgarde (and my sense of Swedish geography is so poor I don't clearly know what region each name refers to), my underlying point is the same--Larsson is relying not just upon the Pskov find but upon a Swedish find about which I have no information. I'd like to know more about her other find.

In regards to the "lined cuffs", the Swedish says the same thing (fodrade manschetter), but this may explain why the cuffs on her earlier reconstructed outfit don't look like they're quite attached to the underlying fabric. If she considers them be lined, but not attached to the undertunic (like the padded cuffs from Mammen), that may explain it?

That may indeed explain it. But the Pskov find, whether lined or not, isn't padded. Perhaps the Gamla Uppsala find is? Or perhaps she's presuming any padding has deteriorated in the ground? (That may not be that crazy if the padding was something like down, though I'd expect at least a few traces of feathers to survive.)
