Assuming the density will remain constant as the GYB grows to it's full 9-foot diameter, it will eventually weight about 5275 lbs, which seems believable.
Yarn comes in standard 4 oz. skeins. The GYB will require 21,100 of these skeins to reach its maximum size.
Wrapping these skeins at 20/day will require about 1000 days, or 3 years.

Still small enough to pick up (barely)
I began this giant yarn ball in 1997, but it languished for years in my living room. This summer I'm going to grow it into the giantest yarn ball in Houston.
Yarn donations will be gratefully incorporated; all donors will recieve a testimonial letter at the grand unveiling next fall. Drop your old skeins at Bill's Junk 1125 E 11th St., Houston, TX
