This Four-Minute Video, Made Entirely From Yarn, Is A Captivating Meditation On Life

Allow us to interrupt your routine morning activities with a stunning meditation on the limitless possibilities of a spool of yellow yarn.


A new music video for British rock band James, entitled "Moving On," invites viewers into the final moments of life for a heartbreakingly adorable yarn creature and his loved ones.

The stop-motion masterpiece was made by director and animator Ainslie Henderson. In a mere three minutes and fifty four seconds, Henderson weaves a living, golden, fuzzy-stringed world, complete with all the emotion of its human counterpart.

Rarely does a knitting material bring tears to our eyes. See the beautiful work below and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
