I’ll admit that until today, I had never wondered what an exploding ball of yarn looks like. But then I happened upon this image and animated GIF in Alan Sailor‘s Flickr stream, and… now I know!

Alan writes, “In this case (as in many others) I walk around stores looking for cheap stuff to blow up. Extra point if it looks easy to clean up.”

  1. So how exactly do you blow this yarn up?
    (Although it seems somewhat sacrilegious to destroy yarn?)
