Please note: This set includes two standard pillowcases.
The famous Unikko (Poppy) print by Maija Isola is scaled down and lovingly named Pikkuinen (The Little One) to be perfectly suited to pillowcases. In white and grey, it provides a nice pop of print while still remaining neutral for easy mixing and matching. The set of two is made from 100% cotton percale to be crisp, comfortable, and machine-washable.
About Percale: If you love the feel of a crisp sheet you’d find in a fine hotel, percale is the perfect weave for you. It’s constructed by a series of horizontal and vertical threads that cross over and under each other one at a time. This creates a matte, lightweight, and breathable fabric that feels similar to that of an ironed dress shirt. It’s perfect for summer and warmer climates, those who get too hot in the night, or anyone that desires a cool and comfortable sleep year-round. It’s also wonderful for people with sensitivities or allergies, as the 100% cotton won’t irritate skin and the tight weave collects less dust than other bedding styles. The sheets will be softened by machine washing, but will retain their long-lasting, quality construction for years and years to come.
Care: Machine washable. Follow instructions on tag.
