RE: The tariff classification of women’s pullovers from China.

Dear Ms. Woo:

In your letter dated September 3, 2007, on behalf of Magaschoni Apparel, Inc., you requested a classification ruling. Your samples are being returned.

The submitted samples, styles T58032 and T68040 are women’s pullovers that are constructed from 100% cashmere knit fabric. The outer surface of the fabrics measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the direction that the stitches were formed. Each style features a ribbed turtleneck, sleeves with ribbed edge sleeve openings (style T58032 long sleeves, style T68040, short sleeves), and ribbed bottom edges.

We cannot rule on style T88276. Please submit a women’s regular size medium.

If you decide to resubmit style T88276, please include all of the material that we have returned to you and mail your request to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Customs Information Exchange, 10th Floor, One Penn Plaza, New York, NY 10119, attn: Binding Rulings Section.

The applicable subheading for styles T58032 and T68040 will be 6110.12.1060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for pullovers, knitted: of wool or fine animal hair: of Kashmir (cashmere) goats: wholly of cashmere: other: women’s.
