Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the sweater will be 6110.90.1020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, crocheted: of other textile materials: containing 70 percent or more by weight of silk or silk waste: sweaters: women’s or girls’. The duty rate will be 1.4% ad valorem.

The sweater falls within textile category designation 746. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Italy are neither subject to quota nor the requirement of a visa.

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