Vellum runs , it's just you made some mistakes ;)

In your vellumhair setup constrain pin i snot set to your pin group .

Then you have to polypath to get only one prim.

More importantly , the pin change from frame to frame as the sop solver in your popnet add new points every frame...

Ok, finally if you drive your contain using the actual transform, you will probably not get close to your reference , play with the scale as well , or maybe restlengh


Hope it helps!
