RE: The tariff classification of wool yarn from Italy

Dear Ms. Morrison:

In your letter dated January 31, 2008, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of your client, Orchard Yarn, of Carlstadt, New Jersey.

The submitted sample is a skein of yarn that you state is constructed of 75% wool and 25% nylon. The skein weighs 100 grams.

The yarn is considered “put up for retail sale” for tariff purposes by virtue of Section XI, Note 4 (b)(ii) or (iii), Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS).

The applicable subheading for the yarn will be 5109.90.9000, HTSUS, which provides for yarn of wool or fine animal hair, put up for retail sale:Other:Other:Other. The rate of duty will be 6% ad valorem.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Mitchel Bayer at 646-733-3102.
