RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s knit sweater of man-made fibers containing 23 percent or more by weight of wool or fine animal hair from Hong Kong and China

Dear Ms. Monahan:

In your letter dated July 31, 2000, you requested a classification ruling.

Style S100261 is a woman’s sweater of 45% mohair/30% nylon/25% acrylic rib knit fabric constructed with fewer than nine stitches per two centimeters measured in the horizontal direction. The garment extends below the waist and features a keyhole frontal opening with an embroidered closure; a scoop neckline;long sleeves; and embroidery on the lower sleeves and front area.

The applicable subheading for the sweater will be 6110.30.1520, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) which provides for sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted; of man-made fibers:other:containing 23 percent or more by weight of wool or fine animal hair:sweaters:women’s or girls’. The duty rate will be 17 percent ad valorem.


Style S100261 falls within textile category designation 446. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products from Hong Kong and China are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

As requested, the sample will be returned.

The designated textile and apparel categories and their quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the U.S Customs Service Textile Status Report, an internal issuance of the U.S.Customs Service, which is available at the Customs Web Site at WWW.CUSTOMS.GOV. 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.

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

A copy of the ruling or control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. Sincerely,

John R. Babb
Port Director Houston/Galveston
