Wool (Also known as Cloth) is a block derived from sheep that can be dyed in any of the 16 different colors. Wool blocks are weak, very flammable, and offer little resistance against explosions. Wool is harvested by right-clicking a sheep with Shears (1 - 3 wool) or killing it (1 wool). It can also be crafted from 4 strings. White, light gray, gray, black, brown, and pink wool can be found naturally by harvesting it from the respective sheep. Wool is a key component of Beds and Paintings. Due to the variety of colors in which wool is available, many players use wool to build colorful buildings. Wool is also commonly used as decoration, as carpeting in houses or large 'beds'. It can also be used to color-code a cave system by placing blocks at intervals so you don't get lost and know which cave you are in.
