Large wool throw

Looking for a blanket/throw to go over our king size bed. I'd like a wool blanket, either a traditional herringbone (although doesn't need to be traditional colours) or check of some description. Most of what I can find online is too small, I want something that will sit well when folded back, rather than just resting on top of the duvet I'd like it to go down the sides of the bed, like the duvet itself. Avoca seem to manufacture them up to 220cm, which would be ideal but the XL is out of stock online and I'd also like to see if there are any alternatives. Does anyone have any recommendations?

What about a traditional welsh throw, a carthen? They come in lots of different colours and they can be HUGE.

What about the National Trust? They do some beautiful ones but I'm not sure how big.

I was going to say a Welsh blanket too. Have a look here. The blankets (as opposed to the throws) are full size. Also, La Redoute do big wool blankets, but they are plain. Not sure if they might be worth a look?

I have a king size bed and I bought a knitted throw from Laura Ashley, plenty big enough but only came in grey. It's lovely though, no regrets. Wait for the 50% off sale, they come around reasonably often.

Brilliant, thanks for all the suggestions, I'm off to have a look at them now!
