Pronounced As One Letter, Written With Three

Pronounced as one letter,
And written with three,
Two letters there are,
And two only in me.
I’m double, I’m single,
I’m black, blue, and gray,
I’m read from both ends,
And the same either way.

What am I?

Eye. It’s pronounced like the letter ‘i’, but written with three letters. There are only two letters used (‘e’ and ‘y’). The eye is double with two ‘e’s and represents a single eye. The eye is made up of various colors, some of which are black, blue and gray. And lastly, the eye is a palindrome, spelled the same forward and backward.

Bee fits the first part, but not about being blue, nor is it the same either way (bee vs eeb).

I find the riddles very interesting.

The answer is a pregnant female sheep or “ewe” pronounced as “u”.
With double “e” and single “w” or single entity or pregnant double entity.
“Ewe” is a palandrone, written an read both directions.
Sheep breed are mostly black and white not blue.
But the “hue” ( aka”ewe”) of a colour can black, blue or gray in hue.
