Answer / guest

Crape for mourning. Crape (always spelt with an ?a? to
indicate mourning crape) was the most used fabric for
mourning clothes. Crape was dull looking silk gauze like
a crimped and stiff textured material and mostly dyed the
deepest of blacks, although white crape was used for the
widow's cap. Black was the chief mourning colour in the
immediate months after a death for deepest mourning.
