Dear Mr. Petrosini:

In your letter dated October 8, 1997 and Fax dated October 29, 1997, on behalf of Westex Inc., Chicago, IL, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The second item, a three thread "fleece" fabric, identified as style Camelot, is of a 100% cotton pile knit construction. This is a three yarn fabric containing flat lying loops (unbrushed) on one side. You indicate that the fabric will be imported in 170 cm widths +5%, weighs 300 g/2 +5% and uses 20/1 gauge yarns.
