Style number FW814 is a woman’s cardigan that is constructed from 100% nylon, openwork, knit fabric. The garment features a round neckline, long sleeves, and a full front opening with 6 button loop closures. The neckline, sleeves, placket area, and the bottom of the garment are finished with satin woven capping. Decorative embroidered rosebuds and beads are sewn on the front and back panels.

Part categories are the result of international bilateral agreements which are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information available, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the Status Report on Current Import Quotas (Restraint Levels), an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available for inspection at your local Customs office.

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