PG *krimpaną, weak OE crympan 2, ME crimpen, MnE crimp, strong Dutch krimpen, German krimpfen “shrink.” Only the past participle is attested with certainty; a causative weak verb kreppa 1 (kreppði, kreppðr) is more commonly found with senses in the range “clench, press together; shrink.” It may be assumed the attested reflexive forms belong to that conjugation.
