How to get wool?


Most of the colors of wool blocks are naturally generated in a lot of naturally generated structures. Players can find wool in villages, pillager outposts, ancient cities, and woodland mansions. It can be picked up by using any tool but shears are the quickest.


Players can trade with apprentice-level shepherd villagers as they have a 50% chance of selling wool blocks. Another way to get wool is by either killing or harvesting it from sheep. Sheep usually drop a wool block upon death but shears will ensure that the sheep lives and you get wool.
