Now let’s talk about dyes in Minecraft since that’s why you are here. In the world of Minecraft, dyes are items used for the coloring of some mobs, leather armor, hardened clay, wool, the patterns on glass and banners. Dyes are produced by crafting or combining other dyes to make a new one. The dyes obtained by crafting are called primary, and dyes obtained by combining primary dyes (or some other items) are called secondary. It’s that simple. However, getting the preferred color isn’t a piece of cake, since some items for crafting dyes are not so easy to find.

Then, we took three elements into consideration: the number of items needed for crafting, how easy is to find these items and finally in how many different ways dye can be made. Let’s take a look at our list, shall we?
