Watch ‘Purl’ – It’s The Nifty Little Animated Short From Pixar
“Purl, directed by Kristen Lester and produced by Gillian Libbert-Duncan, features an earnest ball of yarn named Purl who gets a job in a fast-paced, high energy, bro-tastic start-up. Yarny hijinks ensue as she tries to fit in, but how far is she willing to go to get the acceptance she yearns for, and in the end, is it worth it?”
Last year we shared the luxo ball yarn bomb, here’s the short film that goes with it! It is a beautiful and cute film, with a heavy message and a lot of relatable moments that anyone working in such a context could understand. Purl makes a good analog for the watcher and the audience, a relatable face despite being, well, a ball of yarn. We hope you do great in the wide world, Purl!

Loved this! Only error I found was in the beginning Purl stated “crochet” but then referred to knitting needles. A bit of a pet peeve of mine. Otherwise I thought the message was great.
