We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

wool

Wool is a block derived from sheep that can be dyed in any of the 16 different colors, which are white, orange, magenta, light blue, yellow, lime green, pink, gray, light gray, cyan, purple, blue, brown, green, red, and black.

  1. Times are for unenchanted tools in seconds.

Sheep[edit | edit source]

1 to 3 wool is harvested by using shears on an adult sheep. If unshorn, sheep will drop 1 wool upon death. The wool dropped will be the same color as the sheep's 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. The rest of the colors require dyeing sheep.

Natural generation[edit | edit source]

Naturally occurring black wool with torches on them.

Black wool can also be found naturally in villages as part of a streetlight-like structure where they lie on top of three fence posts, surrounded by 4 torches. Various wool colors generate naturally as part of structures within woodland mansions.

Trading[edit | edit source]

Shepherd villagers sell each separate color of wool for a price of 1 to 2 emeralds for one wool as part of their tier 2 trades.
