Santa will be busy filling world’s largest stocking in Fayetteville

— Santa will need more reindeer to haul the gifts required to fill what’s been designated as the world’s largest Christmas stocking.

The Fayetteville Observer reports the 1,600-pound, 7,700-square-foot stocking will be unveiled at Arnette Park in Fayetteville on Saturday.

It was crafted by knitters from all 50 states, four Canadian provinces and Ireland who donated 3-foot by 3-foot swatches of knitted yarn.

Kimberly Partrick, an adjudicator for Guinness World Records, says the stocking was measured by a local land surveying company and qualifies as the largest.

The stocking was created with yarn from Caron United which is based in Washington, North Carolina. The company donated part of the proceeds from yarn sales to provide more than $100,000 for scholarships for the children of fallen U.S. troops.
