RE: The tariff classification of a capelet and muff set from the Philippines

Dear Ms. Williams:

In your letter dated May 2, 2005 you requested a classification ruling.

Submitted style 2127, manufactured from knitted pile fabric of 100% polyester, is comprised of a hooded capelet, fastening together at the front by means of one button at the center of the neckline, and slit at the lower portion of each of the fronts for arm placement; and of a matching muff. You state that the items will be marketed together and sold together as a set.

In infants’ sizing the applicable subheading for this style will be 6111.30.5070, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for babies’ garments and clothing accessories, knitted, of synthetic fibers, other, other, other. The duty rate will be 16 percent ad valorem.

A ruling cannot be issued for this style in larger sizes without the submission of a sample for evaluation.

In sizing for infants this style falls within textile category designation 239. Quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes.
