Dear Ms. Malina:

In your letter dated July 22, 2005 you requested a classification ruling.

Submitted style 44385 “Infant Gift” set is comprised of infants’ garments and a blanket that are packaged within tissue paper in a gift box. The garments, manufactured from finely knitted fabric of 100% cotton, are a rolled-edge cap and a long-sleeved, long-legged, footed, round-necked garment that fastens together by means of snaps around the inner sides of the legs and at the center of the front. The blanket, manufactured from the same fabric as are the garments, is an approximate 32 inch square.

As you have requested, the sample style is being returned.

The duty rates will be 8.1 and 8.4 percent ad valorem, respectively.

The garments fall within textile category designation 239 and the blanket within 369.
