These wash cloths are just what I wanted. The hems are sturdy and true; well made to withstand many washings. Perhaps 12 is more than I really needed but I can always take some to my mother-in-laws. For some weird reason she does not have or use washcloths. I just don't feel clean until I get a good scrub with a washcloth. As for these washcloths, I am very happy with them and would recommend them to one and all.
