Have you seen a really long-length, warm chunky winter cardigan with a hood?

I've tried to find one in the shops and online but no luck for the past couple of years. I want it to be really chunky and warm so I can wear it as a coat when not too cold, could be cable knit or textured, and ideally a dark colour eg charcoal grey, plum, dark green or brown. Extra-long sleeves would be great too. It's really hard to find this on the web so I'm not asking you to do the donkey work for me but if anyone has seen one or has one, please tell me where I can find it! I've seen people around/on telly with them on so where are they?

I had a nice Boden one (though without a hood) from a few years ago but it's worn to bits and they now don't seem to be doing really long or chunky ones. You can also get similar from Bench but I'm a bit old to have BENCH across my back - looks like I'm trying to be down with the kids. (I wish Bench would do a nice middle-aged lady range )

As much as I would like to help I can't consider knitwear when it's so hot.

Ask me again in September smile

Ooh thanks will look in Zara.

It's not hot here! (windy and damp edinburgh) I was inspired to begin this year's search by getting my Boden winter preview email this morning - excitedly thought they might have one for me - but no.
