If you are buying a lovely Welsh wool blanket and you wish to use it as a bedspread, then you need to know what size it should be. So here are the questions you need to answer!!

Do you know the size of a blanket to drape over the sides of a bed? Need to know what size blanket will fit different bed sizes? Look no further and see below...
3’0” x 6’3” (36 inches x 75) or 90cm x 190cm, Bedspread - 180 x 230 cms
4’6” x 6’3” (54 inches x 75) or 135cm x 190cm, Bedspread - 230 x 255 cms
5’0” x 6’6” (60 inches x 78) or 150cm x 200cm, Bedspread - 255 x 280 cm
For a blanket to drape over the sides of a bed, look at each blanket size and add at least 24 inches to the width of the blanket. This will drape approx 12 inches over the edge of a bed on each side.
There are various differing sizes of beds in Europe and North America and even within countries such as the USA.
