RE: The tariff classification of a women’s sweater from China

Dear Mr. Stack:

In your letter dated December 15, 2005, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Item Eyes, Inc.

A garment, identified as representing both style 64018 (missy sizes S-XL), and W4018 (women’s sizes 1X – 3X) was submitted and will be returned as you have requested.

The garment is made of 55% ramie and 45% cotton crocheted fabric, the outer surface of which measures 9 or fewer stitches per two centimeters, measured in the direction in which the stitches were formed. The garment features a 100% polyester knit lining, a scooped neckline with narrow straps, a slightly flared body, a scalloped bottom and a ribbon, which is threaded around the circumference of the garment just below the bust line.

The applicable subheading for the garment will be 6110.90.9042, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for sweaters, pulloversand similar articles, knitted or crocheted: Of other textile materials: Other: Sweaters for women or girls: Other: Other: Other .
