RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s cardigan and pullover from Jordan

Dear Ms. Purcell:

This letter replaces New York Ruling Letter (NYRL) NY L81148 that was issued to you on December 15, 2004. In that letter, the fiber content was misread and the garment, style A36999, the cardigan, was treated as a garment in chief weight of cotton. The garment is in chief weight of man-made fibers. Please see corrected tariff number and textile category designation below.

In your letter dated November 30. 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted style, A36999, is comprised of a woman’s cardigan and a woman’s pullover. The outer surface of the cardigan and the pullover measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the horizontal direction.

The cardigan features a mock collar, long sleeves with turn back cuffs, a full front opening with a zipper closure, 2 front inset slant zippered pockets in the waist area, and a hemmed bottom.

Style A36999, the pullover, is constructed from 95% cotton, 5% spandex, knit fabric. The pullover features a round neckline, ¾ length hemmed sleeves, and a hemmed bottom.
