Grey Wolf Help: Usher's Well: What is a 'winding sheet' (29) Usher's Well: What is a 'winding sheet' 05 Feb 00

In some versions of 'The Wife of Usher's Well' (not the 2 in the DT database)there are references to a 'winding sheet' The recent Carthy version is the most obvious exampe.

Having checked the excellent glossary in Child volume 5, and searched though the best dictionaries I can find, I'm still at a loss

Any ideas appreciated.
