Submitted style 25093383, manufactured from knitted fabric of 83% cotton/11% rayon/6% polyester which measures more than nine stitches per two centimeters, is a waist-length pullover, characterized by long sleeves and by a mock turtleneck.

As you have requested, the two sample garments are being returned.

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).
