A picture of 2 fadnos.

Fadno is a reed instrument and domestic flute made from Lapland angelica plants of the Sami people (also known as "Lapp") of Scandinavia.[1] The instrument features a reed and three to six (generally four) fingerholes[2] and appears to have no parallels among the surrounding Scandinavian peoples.[3]
