looking for a certain type of numnah

I think i have posted this before, but im looking for a wool (doesnt matter if it is real or not) numnah for use at hack shows. However, im looking for one with the fleece only on the edges, so still thin in the centre because i need to put a raiser pad (raised at the back) on top.
Does anyone know of any particular brands or where i could get one? My local saddlery didnt have any, im going to another next week for a look though. I found these Saddle Pads - Horse Tack - absorb shock - English - Western Riders - ThinLine has anyone used them? im thinking because you can put the pockets in i wouldnt need to use the raiser pad i have now, i was looking at this Trifecta: Cotton Ultra Half Pad w/sheepskin rolls - Horse Rider Performance Saddle Pads - ThinLine
but i would have to buy one without seeing it and i really would like to see one before hand so im sure its what im looking for and would fit with my saddle...
so back to the original point, anyone know where i could get something like this in Australia?

This is the Australian thinline site: Link.

I have the plain cotton trifecta pad - Love it, show in it - It looks neat and tidy - And my horse is happier.

I haven't seen the woolen one, but think it might be very $$$$ - Although I don't doubt very nice.

It strikes me that what you want would be hard to find... Most have the fleece covering the underside then rolled over just at the edges. The pad would have to be a good inch or so bigger than the saddle for the wool to be attached without creating a pressure point/ridge - So you may loose some of the streamlined look you get with the hacking numnah's.

I'm not really a hacky, so sorry I am not of more help!

thanks for the link, i hadnt seen the Australian site.
Wow! it is pricey...
Yeah fitting is a worry, thats why i want to see it first..I think ill just go to the saddlery next week, see what they have. Maybe they can order something in that i can look at..
Im thinking of just going for the breed day at the first show, so ill be using a different saddle, i dont have this problem with it. Or if i do both days just using a white dressage pad so i can use the raiser, its only a small local show anyway so it shouldnt matter.
