2. The Textile Products (Indications of Fibre Content) Regulations 1986(1) are amended as follows—
(a)in Part I of Schedule 2—
(i)in column 1 of item 2, by inserting “cashgora,” after “guanaco,”;
(ii)in column 2 of item 2, by inserting after “guanaco,” the words “cashgora goat (a cross between the kashmir goat and the angora goat),”;
(iii)in column 2 of item 20, by deleting the fibre description and substituting the following—

Bc (CN)≥1.3√T+2 T
where T is the mean linear density in decitex”;
(iv)in column 2 of item 28, by deleting the fibre description and substituting the following—
“fibre formed from synthetic linear macromolecules having in the chain recurring amide linkages of which at least 85% are joined to aliphatic or cycloaliphatic units”; and
(v)after item 28, by adding the following new items—
|“Column 1||Column 2|
|28A||aramid||fibre formed from synthetic linear macromolecules made up of aromatic groups joined by amide or imide linkages, of which at least 85% are joined directly to two aromatic rings and with the number of amide linkages, if the latter are present, not exceeding the number of amide linkages|
|28B||polyimide||fibre formed from synthetic linear macromodecules having in the chain recurring imide units|
|28C||lyocell||a regenerated cellulose fibre obtained by dissolution, and an organic solvent spinning process, without formation of derivatives. For this purpose organic solvent means essentially a mixture of organic chemicals and water; and”|
(b)in Schedule 3, after item 28, by adding the following new items—
|“Fibre No. in Schedule 2||Fibres||Percentages|
