Wool (previously known as cloth) is a block derived from sheep that can be dyed in any of the 16 different colors. Wool blocks are weak, highly flammable, and offer little resistance against explosions.
 From sheep
Wool is harvested by right-clicking an adult sheep with shears (1–3 wool) or killing it (1 wool). The drop rates are not affected by the Fortune or Looting enchantments. White, light gray, gray, black, brown, and pink wool can be found naturally on sheep. Untamed wolves (commonly seen in Forest or Taiga biomes) will sometimes kill nearby sheep, resulting in the occasional blocks of wool being found.
Dyeing sheep (right-clicking them while holding dye) is the most productive method of obtaining colored wool, as the color of wool the sheep will drop when shorn corresponds to the color it has been dyed. Sheep can be reshorn repeatedly if they have access to grass. This is an infinitely higher yield than can by gained by dyeing blocks of wool or killing a dyed sheep. All sheep can be colored and re-colored equally easily, regardless of whether they are any of the naturally occurring colors (white, brown, pink, black, gray, or light gray), or have previously been dyed. Nor is there any need to ‘bleach’ a sheep to white using bone meal before re-coloring it.
Some colors of wool can be obtained through breeding. For instance, breeding a sheep with black wool with a sheep with white wool will produce a lamb with grey wool. This only works with "compatible" colors of wool (meaning that the corresponding dye items could be combined into a third dye color)
Wool can be crafted from string if required. However, as sheep are much easier to collect from than spiders are to kill, doing so may be a waste of resources. But with the Adventure update, string can be collected very easily for beds for use underground.
Any Dyed Wool
 Naturally generated
Black wool blocks can also be found naturally in NPC villages where they lie on top of a fence post, surrounded by 4 torches.
Because of the variety of colors in which wool is available, many players use it to build colorful buildings, statues and other structures, especially in Creative mode. Wool is commonly used as decoration, as carpeting in houses and for large 'beds'. It can also be used to color-code a cave system by placing blocks at intervals so that you know which cave section you are in.
Wool can be used for color coding redstone circuits, to make it easier to find a wire or to separate one contraption from another. It acts as a solid block with no special behavior.
 As a crafting ingredient
Any color of wool or wood may be used for beds and paintings but it has no effect on the product's final appearance.

Issues relating to "Wool" are maintained on the issue tracker. Report issues there.
- The damage values for wool and their respective dyes are the inverse of each other. This is also true for Stained Glass and Stained Clay.
- Shears do not take damage from destroying wool blocks. They're also the fastest tool to destroy already placed wool blocks.
- White wool can be crafted together with bonemeal, but this merely "dyes" the already-white wool into another block of still-white wool.
- On the Xbox 360 Edition Tutorial Map, the Minecraft Logo seen in the sky is made of Light Gray and Black Wool.
/giveto obtain Wool with a Data Value of 16 will appear as White Wool in inventory. When placed, the data value is reset to 0.
- Beyond that, obtaining wool with a DV of 17 or higher will wrap around to 1 again (i.e.: 17 gives orange, 18 gives Magenta) and appear like normal colored wool in the inventory.
- It is rarer to see a natural pink sheep than a zombie/skeleton with natural diamond armor. Both can be "faked", however.
- Wool is the only dyeable block that does not start off as another block. (Stained clay = hardened clay, stained glass = normal glass)
