RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s knitted pullover from China

Dear Ms. Cheung:

In your letter dated December 1, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample which you submitted will be returned, as requested.

The fabric of the pullover has more than nine stitches per two centimeters, measured in the horizontal direction. You state that the fiber content of the pullover is 59% silk, 16% polyester, 14% nylon, 8% metallic and 3% spandex.

Since the pullover contains metallic yarn, you have also submitted a report from a testing laboratory. Their analysis has produced the fiber content to be 59.1% silk, 15.7% polyester, 14.2% nylon, 8.4% metallic and 2.6% spandex.. The laboratory has also reported that the fabric of the pullover consists of three yarns. The first yarn consists of two 2-ply red yarns composed of 100% silk. The second, is a red nylon and spandex elastic yarn. The third is a red 100% polyester yarn plied with red metallic. The report also states that metal portion of the metallic yarn is aluminum.

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.
