I am made of several small components, flexible and small.
I conquer my opponent, it'll leave sometime after all.
Although I amn't mighty, I sure can take a gust.
My parts are intertwined and mingled, let's stick together if we must.
Though I'm made of lots of parts, we're all basically clones.
I come in all sorts of colors- red, green, or blue.
I am composed of many, I'm pretty useless on my own;
I would be truly nothing, were it not for you.
What am I?
Note: "you" in the last line refers to the reader/user of the item in question.
Think sheep and grandmas.
