RE: The tariff classification of wool blend woven fabric from Canada.

Dear Mr. McKenny:

In your letter dated January 22, 1991, on behalf of your client Cookshiretex, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, identified as style No. 600-0738-A110, is composed of 80% carded wool, 15% staple nylon and 5% other staple man-made fibers. It is manufactured using a broken twill weave and is napped on both sides. Weighing 442 g/m2, the fabric will be imported in 147 centimeter widths. In a telephone conversation you indicated that the fabric will be used to manufacture overcoats.

The applicable subheading for the woven wool blend fabric will be 5111.30.9000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for woven fabrics of carded wool or carded fine animal hair, other, mixed mainly or solely with man- made staple fibers, other. The duty rate will be 48.5 cents per kilogram plus 38 percent ad valorem.

Goods classifiable under subheading 5111.30.9000, HTS, which have originated in the territory of Canada, will be entitled to a 33.9 cents per kilogram plus 26.6 percent ad valorem rate of duty under the United States-Canada Free Trade Agreement (FTA) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.

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.
