Wool is a block that is often used as a building block for its variety of colors.
Wool can be broken with anything, but shears are fastest.
Since wool is obtained from a mob, it makes it renewable.
The sheep will also drop wool upon death if it still has its coat.
Wool can be crafted using four pieces of string.
Wool blocks can be crafted back from their respective backdrop.
Wool blocks are weak, highly flammable, and offer little resistance against explosions. Their primary usage is as a decorative block.
Three pieces of wool (any combination of colors) are required in the recipe for the bed.
The afro is crafted out of eight pieces of wool (any color).
A santa hat can be crafted using 4 pieces of wool (any color).
The wool backdrop can be crafted with any one wool block.
