Wool Dyes

The various substances that are called dyes in the game can all be applied directly to sheep to color them, and when you do that, the Sheep takes on that color in its Wool.  After you shear the Wool it will appear to be white (leaving white remnants on the Sheep) but when the Wool regrows after the Sheep eats Tall Grass, the Wool will grow in the color you dyed it before you cut it!   That means you can set up your own custom colored flock if you like...


The Black Dye Recipe

-- Black Dye
Obtained by combining an Ink Sac with a Wool Block or applying it to a Sheep.  Note that Black Sheep spawn in the game naturally, so this is not really required to obtain Black Wool.


-- Bone Meal
Using Bone Meal to dye a Sheep white is the only direct use you have for it in this fashion, as a dye, since it cannot be used to change colored wool blocks back into white wool at a crafting table.

When it is combined with other dyes, you can produce new colors, including:

Bone Meal Ink Sac = Gray Dye
Bone Meal Lapis Lazuli = Light Blue Dye
Bone Meal Gray Dye =Light Gray Dye
Bone Meal Cactus Green = Lime Dye
Bone Meal Rose Red= Pink Dye


-- Brown Dye
Brown Dye can be crafted by placing one Cocoa Bean and one Wool Block in a crafting window.  Note that this does not create a Dye as such, but rather dyed Wool -- but as Brown Sheep are a naturally occurring color anyway, and Cocoa is better used in making Cookies anyway, you might not want to do this.



The Cactus Green Dye Recipe

-- Cactus Green Dye
Cactus Green Dye is crafted by cooking a piece of Cactus in a Furnace.  It can then be combined with a Wool Block or applied to a Sheep to create a Green Wool Spawn.

The Gray Dye Recipe

-- Gray Dye
This color is obtained by crafting one Bone Meal with one Ink Sack.   The resulting dye color can be combined with Wool to make Gray Wool, or can be applied to Sheep to turn them into a spawn for that color of Wool though it should be noted that as this is a naturally occurring color anyway, doing so is of limited value.



The Lapis Dye Recipe

-- Lapis Lazuli Dye
