LEGO Fortnite: How to Get Heavy Wool

LEGO Fortnite Heavy Wool featured

Heavy Wool is one of the hardest resources to get in LEGO Fortnite. Its regular counterpart may be a breeze to collect, but this one has some extra steps that make it a challenge. In this guide, I’ll be teaching you the various ways to get Heavy Wool in LEGO Fortnite.

How to Get Heavy Wool in LEGO Fortnite

There are two ways to get Heavy Wool in LEGO Fortnite: either by looting them from the chests inside the Frostland Caves or by befriending sheep. Both options present their own challenges in getting this resource.

Your first option is to get Heavy Wool from the caves of the Frostland biome. This region is not only freezing cold but also has late-game powerful enemies that could end you in a couple of hits. If you don’t have the right charms that give you Cold Resistance, you can die in a couple of seconds.

There’s also no guarantee that you’ll find a cave to get Heavy Wool on. You’ll need to keep wandering until you find a cave since cave spawns are procedurally generated. And even then, you may not find any chests that have Heavy Wool inside.

Get Heavy Wool from Sheep in LEGO Fortnite

The most stable way to farm Heavy Wool is by befriending sheep, as you don’t have to journey to the Frostlands biome to do so. They will give you Heavy Resource within time. Befriending sheep may sound like the easiest option, but it’s actually pretty time-consuming itself.

What happens normally is that when you pet a sheep, it will give you standard wool. However, when you bond with it by repeatedly taking care of the needs of the same sheep, it will eventually drop Heavy Wool. This will involve setting up in the long run, such as making pens, and repeatedly coming back to visit.

To pet Sheep in LEGO Fortnite, you simply have to approach them with a Raspberry equipped. Then a prompt will show you how to pet them. The sheep will consume the raspberry.

There’s no way to tell how close you are to getting that Heavy Wool from a sheep you’ve bonded with until it happens. So you should just be consistently taking care of their needs until they start dropping them. What’s great about this is that sheep can spawn as early as the Grasslands biome making them easy to get for your village. You can even automate getting heavy wool by assigning one of your villagers to do Textile.
