- Visit the Minecraft Wiki for basic information about Silk Touch
Silk Touch is an enchantment found in Vanilla Minecraft. Silk Touch contains only one rank, which may be put on weapons, tools, and Shears. Silk Touch may be obtained on an Enchanted Book.
Silk Touch allows blocks that normally drop other items, to drop themselves. This allows the gathering of Coal Ore, Cobwebs, Grass Blocks, and Ice.
However, Silk Touch will not work on blocks such as Cake, farm-related blocks not normally obtainable, Monster Spawner, and Snow.
