RE: The tariff classification of dyed warp knit fabric cut to 18-inch squares from China.

Dear Ms. Williams:

In your letter dated May 6, 2005 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted samples, designated as “Rhythm Scarves”, are dyed warp knit fabrics composed of 100% filament polyester. Weighing approximately 23.5 g/m2, these products will be imported cut to 18” X 18” squares. The fabric squares have not been hemmed and the edges are not finished in any way. Your correspondence indicates that these “Rhythm Scarves” will be marketed as teaching aids for rhythm games and exercises, color recognition, juggling practice and movement and dance classes. The fabric squares will be packed in sets of 6 or 36.

The applicable subheading for the warp knit fabric squares will be 6005.32.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for warp knit fabrics (including those made on galloon knitting machines), other than those of headings 6001 to 6004, of synthetic fibers, dyed, other, other. The rate of duty will be 10 percent ad valorem.
