Black sheep are NPCs that players must shear in the Sheep Shearer miniquest. Using shears on them will produce black wool, which can then be made into a ball of black wool.

After players complete the miniquest, they can no longer shear the black sheep, and any excess black wool or balls of black wool are also removed from a player's inventory and bank.

They are only found in Fred the Farmer's sheep pen.


  • Before the 15 December 2009 update, there was only one black lamb instead of a sheep.
  • Originally the player had to collect 20 balls of wool. However, many players simply bought the wool instead of shearing it. The introduction of the black sheep was to encourage players to actually attempt the miniquest themselves.
  • If you did the quest before it was changed to a miniquest and talk to Fred the Farmer, he will reward you with some gold pieces.
