RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s pullover from China

Dear Ms. Fuller:

In your letter dated February 14, 2006, on behalf of Pressfield Company Limited, 2/F Workshop, Flat A & C, Lucky Factory Building, 63-65 Hung To Road, Kwun Tong, Kowloon, Hong Kong, you requested a classification ruling. Your sample is being returned as requested.

The submitted sample, style number 12M53104, is a woman’s sleeveless pullover that is constructed from 60% rayon, 40% nylon, 1x1 rib knit fabric. The fabric of the garment measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the horizontal direction.

For purposes of Statistical Note 6 to Chapter 61, the stitch count is more than 9 but equal to or less than 18 stitches per 2 centimeters measured on the outer surface of the fabric in the direction in which the stitches were formed. The purl stitches do not reflect the stitch count. The garment features a square neckline and a finished bottom. The front panel is knit to shape with a self start bottom, self finished sides, full fashion marks at the armholes, a contoured neckline and clear lines of demarcation on the front panel of the garment. The back panel is knit to shape with a self-start bottom, self finished sides, full fashion marks at the armholes and a contoured neckline. The neckline fabric is knit to shape. All the components are looped and linked to form the finished garment.
