Just today, Pixar released a brand new short titled Purl following Purl, a pink ball of yarn 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? The full short is currently up on YouTube for all to enjoy:

In Pixar’s Instagram post, they also hinted that the short will be released as part of the Disney+ streaming service library once it launches in late 2019.
Purl was directed by Kristen Lester, produced by Gillian Libbert-Duncan, and is part of Pixar’s SparkShorts series.
What do you think of the short? Should we advocate for more yarn inclusivity in the workplace?
