RE: The tariff classification of women’s pullovers from China

Dear Mr. Kamnitz:

In your letter dated January 27, 2006, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Loyaltex Fashion, Inc.

Five garments, along with the components pieces and the garments in semi-finished stages were submitted. All of the garments are made of 55% cotton and 45% acrylic finely knit fabrics. The outer surfaces of all of the fabrics contain over 9 stitches per 2 centimeters, but equal to or less than 18 stitches per 2 centimeters, measured in the direction in which the stitches were formed. All of the component pieces of each garment are knit to shape. All of the garments are assembled by the linking and looping of all of their respective component pieces. According to our telephone conversation, these samples will be retained by this office.

The garment is decorated with embroidered flowers with sewn on beads and sequins. The garment also features shoulder pads tacked to the inside shoulders of the garment.

Style 70163/70183 is a short sleeved garment featuring a rounded neckline, shoulder pads tacked to the inside of the shoulders, an embroidered flower pattern on the front panel decorated with beads, and ribbons threaded vertically into the front knit pattern of the garment.
