For a list of all colored dyes in Minecraft, see Dyes.

Gray Dye is a secondary color that can be used to re-color a number of items in Minecraft.

Mechanics

Gray dye is made by combining one Bone Meal and an Ink Sac in a crafting table. As with all other dyes, this dye can be used to re-color Sheep. This is useful if one wants a steady supply of a specific color of wool because sheep will regrow their wool after being sheared. To dye sheep with gray dye, a player must first equip a piece of gray dye in their hand, and then right-click the sheep. The sheep's wool will immediately turn gray.

Gray dye can also be used to re-color tamed wolf collars by right-clicking a tamed wolf while holding gray dye.

Wandering Traders will sell gray dye for an Emerald.

Uses

Crafting

Gray dye can be used to re-color some types of blocks. However, this is not done while holding the dye in hand, but instead by placing the necessary items in a Crafting Table interface. It can also dye leather armor and leather horse armor by using gray dye on a filled cauldron, then using the armor/horse armor on the cauldron.
