Submitted style NLG8126 is a sleeveless jumper, manufactured from woven fabric of 80% acrylic, 10% polyester, and 10% wool, and characterized by A-line styling, a square neckline, a zippered opening at the back. Decorative, buttoned tabs are located at the center of the lower portion of the back.

In addition, the designated textile and apparel categories may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected and should also be verified at the time of shipment.
