Orange Wool

Orange Wool


Orange Wool is created by one of two methods. Regular Wool, which is white by default, can be dyed by using a Crafting Table (see below for recipe). Alternatively, a regular Sheep can be colored using a crafted dye. This colorful wool can then be harvested with the use of the Shears.

If you require a large supply of Wool it would be most efficient to Breed Sheep.

Usage / Purpose

Orange Wool is used as a decorative building block, to craft Orange Carpet, or in the crafting of a Bed.

Drops / Yields

A sheared Sheep drops between 1 and 3 blocks of wool. A killed sheep drops one block of wool. Lambs do not produce harvestable wool.


Wool is stored in stacks of up to 64 units.


The color of the wool does not affect the color of a crafted Bed.

Only white Wool can be colored after it has been sheared. Colored wool cannot be reverted to white or changed to other colors.


Orange Wool

Each unit of white wool and dye produces one colored block.
