Your submitted sample, style 081-0550, is a 100% wool knit women’s sweater. The outer surface of the sweater measures fewer than nine stitches per two centimeters in the horizontal direction. The garment features a round neckline, long sleeves, a full frontal opening with internal velvet trim, front panels which have a beaded floral design near the bottom and a straight bottom. Style 081-0550 is the regular sized version. The identical garment will be imported as Style 081-0552 (petite sized version) and style 081-0551 (tall sized version). You state that the fabric panels are knit to shape in England.

The applicable subheading for styles 081-0550, 081-0551 and 081-0552 will be 6110.10.2030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of wool or fine animal hair: other, sweaters, women’s.
