Dear Ms. Seeley:

In your letter dated January 2, 2006 you requested a classification ruling.

The round neckline, sleeve cuffs and ankles are finished with rib knit fabric. The rolled-edge sock hat has rib knit fabric at the perimeter. The face of the stretchsuit is printed with a football motif. The coverall and hat both contain appliqués that are embroidered with the word “Raiders™” and the team logo.

The receiving blanket is made from the same 100 percent cotton knit fabric. It measures approximately 28 x 34 inches. The face of the blanket is also printed with a football motif.
