RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s knit garment from China; applicability of HTSUS Chapter 61 Statistical Note 6

Dear Ms. Gong:

In your letter dated July 31, 2006, you requested a classification ruling.

Following is the description of the sample that you have submitted and the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) provision that applies.

Style Number: JF6262
Garment Description: raglan sleeved pullover with front scoop neckline, long sleeves and multi-parted components pieces of fabric composing the neckline. Fiber content is stated to be 53% cotton, 33% rayon, 9% polyester and 5% metallic. Two yarns are used to create the fabric; a cotton/rayon yarn and a polyester/metallic yarn. (Please note that a yarn that contains any amount of metal is regarded in its entirety as "metalized yarn" for tariff purposes. Thus, the determination of which textile material predominates by weight is based not on the actual weight of metal, but on the actual weight of all yarns that contain metal.) HTSUS Chapter 61 Statistical Note 3 Stitch Count: over 9 HTSUS Chapter 61 Statistical Note 6 Stitch Count: equal to or less than 18 Component Construction: openwork pieces that comprise part of the series of bands of fabric creating the neckline are not made on a flat bed knitting machine; the upper and final banding of material comprising the neckline is not knit to shape. The component piece submitted far exceeds in length the piece used on the garment and must be cut. Further, it appears the piece used on the garment was cut at both ends, and thus not knit to shape in that respect. HTSUS Number: 6110.20.2079
Textile Category Number: 339

The sample is being retained for official purposes.

To view the tariff language and current duty rates that correspond to these HTSUS provisions, please refer to the text of the most recent HTSUS, which is available on the World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.
