The Loom is 1 of the 13 job site blocks villagers use to work. A Villager who works with Loom is called a Shepherd. If there is an unemployed/jobless Villager standing near a Loom, it’ll become a Shepherd. You can always find Loom inside Shepherd’s house.
You can use Loom to apply colorful patterns to a Banner. All the details about that will be explained below.
How to Craft a Loom
To craft a Loom, you need 2 Strings and 2 Wood Planks (you can use any types of Wood Planks to make a Loom).
How Loom Works
Loom works when players put a Banner into the Banner Slot, Dye into the Dye Slot, and select a Basic Pattern from the Pattern Box.
The Patterns’ color reflects the color of the Dye player using.
Each Pattern can be stacked or layered up to 6 times. The new Pattern will overlap the old Pattern, and so on.

There is another slot on the Loom. It’s for the Banner Pattern. Banner Pattern is an item to make a special and unique pattern that can be applied to a Banner through Loom.
By default, Loom can’t have these unique patterns. Depending on what kind of Banner Pattern players want to get, Banner Patterns have different ways to get. Here are all the Banner Patterns and how to get them:

The Thing is a Banner Pattern that shows an old Mojang Logo. Players can get it by crafting a Paper and an Enchanted Golden Apple.
