Dear Mr. Shah:

In your letter dated April 18, 2006 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

It is composed of 70.3% cotton and 29.3% polyester with the pile yarns composed wholly of cotton. Weighing 266.2 g/m2, this product will be imported in 231 centimeter widths. Your correspondence indicates that this fabric will be used as mattress ticking.

The applicable subheading for the weft knit fabric will be 6001.91.0020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for pile fabrics, including “long pile” fabrics and terry fabrics, knitted or crocheted, other, of cotton, other. The rate of duty will be 18.5 percent ad valorem.
