The cardigan features a hood, long sleeves, a full front opening with a zipper closure, 2 front pouch pockets in the waist area, 2 side slits, and a hemmed bottom. The hood, sleeves and pockets are finished with knit capping.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the cardigan will be 6110.30.3055, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweatersand similar articles, knitted: of man made fiber: otherother: women’s. The duty rate will be 32.4% ad valorem..

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.

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Mike Crowley at 646-733-3049.
