The first item is an eye mask, made of 100% cashmere knit fabric. The second item is a 100% cashmere knit shawl-like wrap, measuring approximately 36” x 86”.

Your inquiry does not provide enough information for us to give a classification ruling on the slippers.

When this information is available, you may wish to consider resubmission of your request. If you decide to resubmit your request, please include all of the material that we have returned to you.
