In your letter dated June 22, 2006, on behalf of Susana Monaco, Inc., 263 West 38th Street, New York, NY 10018, you requested a classification ruling. Your samples are being returned.

The submitted samples, style numbers C6C 2546 and C6C 1545, are women’s pullovers that are constructed from 75% modal, 18% wool, 7% elastane, knit fabric. The outer surface of the fabrics measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the direction that the stitches were formed. Both garments reach to the upper thigh area and feature gathered bust lines and elasticized side seams. You state that the garments are not knit to shape.
