RE: The tariff classification of two women’s sweaters from Hong Kong

Dear Ms. Cheung:

In your letter dated November 30, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling. Your samples are being returned as requested.

You submitted two samples of women’s sweaters that are constructed from 100% Merino wool, knit fabric. The outer surface of the garments measures fewer than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the horizontal direction. The sweaters extend from the shoulder to the knee area.

Style 153201 features a turn down collar with embroidered designs, long sleeves with embroidered designs on the sleeve openings, a full front opening with 5 button closures, 2 front patch pockets in the waist area, and a tubular hemmed bottom.

Style 153204 features a rib knit collar, long tubular hemmed sleeves with elbow patches, a full front opening, a ribbed placket and 6 button closures, 2 front flap pockets in the waist area, and a tubular hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for each sweater will be 6110.11.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, knitted: of wool or fine animal hair: of wool: sweaters: women’s. The rate of duty will be 16% ad valorem.
