    Okay, now that you know all the ways to obtain all 16 dyes, you just need to craft them with any piece of wool. Wool is obtained by killing, or shearing sheep. It can also spawn naturally in the world around Villages and Pillager Outposts.

    edit: Wool can also be crafted with 4 string.

    If I were you, id clear your inventory and hold one of each piece of wool in your inventory. Then, after you've obtained all 16 colors, your achievement should pop!

    As CovertBazinga said in another version of this cheevo,

    If you have all 16 and it's still not popping for you, try putting them all on the floor and walking over them...aka..."gathering" them. Worked for me first try!

    You can also drop them 1 by 1 and let it collect back into your inventory so that the game detects them.
