RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s knit cardigan from China.

Dear Ms. Manrique:

In your letter dated March 17, 2006, you requested a classification ruling. Your sample is being returned as requested.

The submitted sample, Style T22545 is a woman’s cardigan constructed from 30.5% cotton, 30.5% rayon, 19% nylon, and 20% spandex knit fabric. The fabric of the garment measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the direction that the stitches were formed. The sewn-in lining is constructed from 100% polyester woven fabric. The garment features a full front opening with a six-button closure, long sleeves with rib knit cuffs, and a rib knit bottom. Woven capping finishes the placket. However, as noted above, not all of the components are knit to shape and do not meet the requirements of statistical note 6 to chapter 61.
