RE: The tariff classification of wool/nylon blend woven billiard fabric from Belgium.

Dear Mr. Holt:

In your letter dated October 11, 1990, on behalf of your client Dufferin Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a twill woven fabric composed of 74% carded wool and 26% staple nylon. It is constructed using 8/1 nm yarns in both the warp and filling. The fabric contains 12 warp ends per centimeter and 12.5 filling picks per centimeter. Weighing between 375 and 395 g/m2, this product will be imported in 58 to 62 inch widths. The fabric has been dyed green and exhibits a highly napped surface. Your correspondence indicates that this merchandise will be used for covering pool, snooker and billiard tables.

The applicable subheading for the woven billiard fabric will be 5111.30.0500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for woven fabrics of carded wool or of carded fine animal hair, other, mixed mainly or solely with man- made staple fibers, tapestry fabrics and upholstery fabrics of a weight exceeding 300 g/m2. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
