Shears are the most efficient to acquire wool from a sheep. By using the shears via right-click, the player can acquire 1 to 3 wool blocks. The same sheep can be sheared again after it eats from a Grass Block to regenerate its wool.
Shearing either a beehive or bee nest at honey level 5 drops 3 honeycombs. This does not break the hive or nest.
- If shears are used on an activated Dispenser, and a sheep is near to it, the dispenser containing the shears will shear the sheep.
- Even though it's made of iron, the grip has some leather in it.
- Arguably, shears are sort of a "hidden gem" in Minecraft. Not something most people think about, but can be very valuable: especially if you have a shepherd villager to trade with.
