RE: The tariff classification of a sweater for ladies’ wear from Hong Kong

Dear Mr. Allan:

In your letter dated June 7, 2006 you requested a classification ruling.

Submitted style CL116597 is a long-sleeved, turtle-necked pullover, manufactured from two different fabrics. The fabric that forms the body of the garment is knitted from 90% merino wool/7% nylon/3% spandex. The other fabric, which measures approximately four stitches per centimeter, is crocheted from 45% mohair/45% nylon/10% acrylic. This crocheted fabric forms the cuffs of the sleeves and an overlay of the entire front. This overlay is sewn securely into the seams of the garment, and imparts its essential characteristic.

As you have requested, the sample garment is being returned.
