Fabric is a lightweight mod loader for Minecraft that was first introduced to the public in 2018. Since then, it has become a serious competitor to Minecraft Forge (If you want to know more about the difference between Fabric and Forge, click here). And throughout those two years, we have seen some fantastic Minecraft Fabric mods added that make Forge players jealous.
So in this blog post, we’ll list 25 fantastic Minecraft Fabric mods I think every Minecraft player should try at least once. I’ll link to any forge ports if one exists. So if that interests you, then keep on reading.
Last year, we got an update to the nether that completely changed the underworld forever. In comparison, End has become quite stale.
But it doesn’t have to be this way! With Better End installed, you’ll find a more colourful and exciting world! There are a total of 24 new biomes added, like Chorus Forests and Foggy Mushroomland. Additionally, there are new mobs, tools, food, armor, and weapons.
So if you’re looking to spice up your world, this mod is a must.
Biome makeover is a Minecraft Fabric mod that wants to improve the biomes in Minecraft. This mod has currently reworked four biomes: Mushroom Fields, the Badlands, Swamps and Dark Forest.
In those reworked biomes, you’ll find new foliage, mobs, items, blocks and armor. They even did a complete overhaul of the woodland mansion.
So if you want to make the vanilla biomes more appealing and unique, I highly recommend you check this mod out.
Vanilla Minecraft has tons of blocks to build with. And with them, people have made some jaw-dropping houses and more. However, have you ever wished there were more blocks out there?
Well, with Decorative Blocks, you can make your houses even more impressive. With it, you get a lot of new blocks, including Wooden Seats, a Chandelier, Rocky Dirt, Wooden Supports, and much more.
There are even some addons to make your houses look even more impressive.
P.S Your Minecraft house needs to look good both inside and outside! So if you need any building ideas, click here.
Is your Minecraft house a bit bland inside? If so, then you could create vanilla furniture or install Adorn. From all the Minecraft Fabric mods that add furniture, Adorn is the best one! That’s due to almost every piece of furniture having a function.
For example, the sofas in this mod have two features: one is to sit and the other one is that you can sleep in them. You also have shelves to store items, tables you can sit on, and even trading posts to sell items.

Apart from Biomes O’ Plenty, there isn’t a biome mod more popular. This mod adds a lot to your Minecraft world.
There are over 80 new biomes across all three dimensions – Overworld, Nether, and the End. Plus, you’ll get more than 200 unique blocks and items, including new ores, armours, and tools.
So if you’re looking to build an RPG or just to spice up your Minecraft world, then this mod is suitable for you.
Next up, we have Ecologics.
It’s a mod that aims to update vanilla biomes to become more unique and exciting.
In this mod, there are overhauls for four different biomes: beach biome, desert biome, plains biome, and snowy biomes. You’ll find brand new mobs like Camels, Coconut Crabs, and even Penguins. Each one is unique and has different features making them useful.
Additionally to mobs, you’ll also find new structures like desert ruins and small sandcastles.
So if you’re looking to freshen up your Minecraft world, then this is one of the best Minecraft Fabric mods for it.
This mod is a faithful recreation of the abandoned mod BetterSleeping. The mod looks to give more functionality to beds and make sleeping a requirement. With this mod, the player gets 20 seconds of regeneration after sleeping through the night.
But if you don’t sleep, you get some debuffs. For example, you’ll get slower weather and even get mining fatigue making your daily Minecraft extremely difficult.
So overall, this is an excellent Fabric mod for those looking to make playing Minecraft more challenging.
Sodium is a fantastic performance mod for your Minecraft world. The performance numbers are just jawdropping. Some YouTubers have been able to get 1000 FPS from their high-end PCs.
Blossom is a small fabric mod that gives trees new functionality.
Now, instead of breaking tree leaves to get a slight chance for an apple, you can wait until the flowering leaves turn into apples. Bees will also start pollinating in those leaves and speeding up your apple growth.
Once the apples are ready, you can use shears to harvest them. So it might be a small mod, but it’s still one of the best Minecraft fabric mods out there.
Immersive Portals is a small but fantastic mod that makes your portal experience that much more incredible.
First, you’ll now instantly load into the other dimension with no loading screens! But that’s not what makes it so cool.
What makes it so remarkable is the ability to see through the portal and what is happening on the other side.
Mo’ Structures is one of the best Minecraft Fabric mods that add structures. You can find many interesting new structures like Villager Markets, Pyramids, and even air balloons floating in the sky.
Were you disappointed when Copper Golem didn’t win the latest mob vote? If so, then Friends & Foes is a mod for you.
This fabric mod aims to bring many cut features to the game, including mobs that didn’t win the mob vote. For example, you should now find glares, copper golems, mooblooms, and even an illusioner.
The mod also adds some other features like a new villager called “Beekeeper,” with its own unique structure. It also gives beehives different wood variants.
So if you’re looking to play with mobs cut from the game, then this mod is made for you.
Origins is a mod that basically introduces classes to your game! Once you start up your Minecraft world, you can choose between 10 different origins. Each one gives you special abilities and weaknesses.
For example, there’s Elytrian. As an Elytrian, you have Elytra wings permanently attached to you, plus you can launch yourself into the air every 30 seconds. Cool right? But that comes with a cost. You can only wear light armour (no full netherite armour for you!). Plus, you’ll take more fall damage.
Roughly Enough Items is a simple mod that you want to install if you plan to play with many mods. It works just like Just Enough Items but is made for Fabric. With this installed, you’ll be able to search for any item, including modded items, and see its crafting recipes.
MCA Reborn is an immersive roleplaying experience where you can create relationships with Villagers. It’s a faithful recreation of the old and original mod called “Minecraft Comes Alive”! And there’s much to do in this mod.
For starters, the mod replaces your usual villagers with humans with who you can interact. You can make friends, get a boyfriend or girlfriend. And if you progress far enough, you can later marry them and start a family.
Additionally to that, the mod also has some other features. For example, you can increase your rank in a village and eventually become its ruler. The mod also allows you to marry other players if you so desire.
Overall, a fantastic mod for those looking for an RPG experience.
Not Enough Animations adds some much-needed animations to your game. Now when you’re holding a map in your hand, the animation is seen in the third person. They also include rowing and eating animations. I especially like that there’s an animation of the player holding the reins while riding a horse.
Feudal Weaponry is a mod that adds more weapon varieties to your game. You’ll find medieval weapons like maces, axes, long swords, and many more. Plus, they’ve also added round shields to the game.
In vanilla Minecraft, emeralds are used as a currency for trading. However, emeralds take up a lot of space and are rare to find. So instead of mining or trading emeralds, Numismatic Overhaul adds a new currency to the game.
With it, you get three new coins:
- Bronze Coins
- Silver Coins (Worth 100 Bronze Coins)
- Gold Coins (Worth 100 Silver Coins)
You can acquire them by killing Pillagers, exploring structures, and, of course, by trading with Villagers. Additionally to that, Numismatic Overhaul also adds player shops to the game, giving you an easier way of selling your goods.
So if you’re looking to build an SMP server, then having this Minecraft Fabric mod is a must.
Ever been jealous of bedrock players having armour stands with hands in survival? Well, now you can have the same in Java with Mannequins.
Mannequins can be used for two purposes:
First to use it as a way to display your armour and weapons. The poses it can make are highly customisable with its easy to use GUI.
And secondly, you can use it as a test dummy. So you can practise your fighting skills without having a fear of breaking them. If you do want to break a mannequin, hold shift and then you’re able to break it.
A Cute Little Crock Pot is yet another tiny fabric mod. This mod adds a basic cooking pot with which you can create your own stews.
To use the pot, you need to place it under a campfire (or a Redstone block), fill it with water, and add your ingredients. Depending on the ingredients you put in, you’ll get a more filling stew.
In the future, the mod owner will also add the functionality of adding potions to your stew. So if you’re looking for a small mod to make more food, then this mod is for you!
Want to make your game a bit more challenging? Why not add a thirst bar to your game. From now on, you need to keep yourself hydrated, or you might die of thirst. But don’t drink any water, as you could get a thirst potion effect. So, purify your water before you drink it.
Not hard enough? Well, why not add Environmentz to your mod list. With this mod installed, you’ll have to dress for the weather as your character will now have side effects like slowness when overheated.
So warm yourself by wearing leather-, insulated- or the new cool wolf armour. And keep yourself from overheating by wearing no armour at all.
Minecraft Dungeons is a spin-off game with some pretty cool weapons available for fighting monsters. However, most of these fantastic weapons are not in the main Minecraft game.
Well, that all changes with MC Dungeons Weapons. With this mod, you get access to over 70 weapons from the MC Dungeons game. But that’s not all this mod does.
What I love about this mod even more is that it adds dual-wielding to the game, bringing more variety of weapons to the game.
So if you’re looking for a better way to fight monsters, this is a mod for you.
Have you ever wished that enchanting wasn’t luck-based? Instead, you’d like to get your enchantments by picking them yourself? Well, with an enchanting infuser, that all is possible.
There are two different versions available: Amethyst and Netherite Enchanting Infusers. The only difference is that with the netherite enchanting infuser, you can enchant your gear cheaper.
However, you need to surround it with bookshelves for this to work. And instead of requiring 15 bookshelves for the maximum level, you need 30 bookshelves making the mod balanced.
So overall, Enchanting Infuser is an awesome Fabric mod!
In 1.14, we finally got coloured beds! But why not take it a step further? With Bedspreads, you can now add banner designs to your beds, making them even more customisable.
All you need to do is design the banner on your loom, then go to your crafting table and combine the two.
We know how sad it is when the game informs you about the passing of your dog. So why not protect them by equipping them with armour? With Wolves with Armor, you can suit your best friend with all five tiers of armor, including netherite armor. It will give your four-legged friend the same protection as horse armor.
And that’s it! These are the best Minecraft fabric mods that I love to use. Which one is your favourite mod? Are there any I should have mentioned as well?
Comment down below! In my opinion, the most fantastic mod must be the Better End mod. It changes the look of the end, making me desire to go there, even more, just to see its beautiful landscapes!
