A high-quality weave, percale has a noticeably tighter weave that allows for a higher thread count which makes the sheets softer to the touch. Medium in weight, the fabric is matte with no additional sheen or shine but the texture is very smooth and able to resist warping and washes exceptionally well.

I exchanged this print by phone with the Pieni Leto, so my review is for that, though I can only write it here.
I very much like the subtle chaos of that print, which doesnâ€™t attract too much attention but fits in with all thatâ€™s going on in the room because itâ€™s so sketchy.
The quality is good as well, so Iâ€™ve ordered another Marimekko bedding package (a more colorful one, to switch to as a contrast).

MehilÃ¤ispesÃ¤ comforter set
I accidentally bought this thinking I was buying a comforter cover . I ended up keeping it because it is so pretty and stylish. Iï¿½â‚¬â"¢m using it as a bed cover. The print a shimmer to it that is classy but not too overwhelming. The comforter is a bit stiff and ï¿½â‚¬Ëœnoisyï¿½â‚¬â"¢ but I assume itï¿½â‚¬â"¢s just newness. Iï¿½â‚¬â"¢m very pleased with my purchase.

the pictures don't do this pattern justice - it has a subtle shiny / glitter that looks marvelous in low light in the bedroom. goes great with other marimekko patterns from previous years as it is neutral. love it!!
