- (sarape [sarape], origin not found)OED: 1834. Watts references this as a blanket used as a cloak or as an ornamental garment worn folded over one shoulder. Clark notes that in English it no longer means a wrap for men (See sarape) and often refers instead to a shawl worn by women (see also rebozo). Spanish sources gloss sarape as a brightly colored wool or cotton blanket with a hole in the center for a person's head.
