It's about 70,000,000 times as long as a Grain of Sand.
In other words, 60 hanks is 70,200,000 times the length of a Grain of Sand, and the length of a Grain of Sand is 0.00000001420 times that amount.
(medium grain)
Composed mainly of quartz, mica, feldspar, or magnetite, a grain of sand measures an average of 0.0000008540 hanks. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 0.0103 hanks in height.
It's about 900,000,000 times as long as a Strand of Hair.
In other words, 60 hanks is 890,000,000 times the length of a Strand of Hair, and the length of a Strand of Hair is 0.00000000110 times that amount.
(average)
A strand of human hair averages 99 µm (micrometers), with blond hair being the finest and black hair the thickest. On a healthy scalp, each strand of hair will last up to 6 years.
It's about 900,000,000 times as tall as a Human hair, Strand of.

It's about 900,000,000 times as tall as a sheet of Paper.
In other words, the height of a sheet of Paper is 0.000000001000 times 60 hanks.
(for US Letter, a.k.a. ANSI A; 215.9mm by 279.4mm (8.5 in x 11 in); 20lb)
A single sheet of 20 lb, 8.5 inch x 11 inch paper is just 0.0000000700 hanks thick. This style of paper weighs a mere 5 g per sheet.
It's about 10,000,000,000 times as long as a Red Blood Cell.
In other words, 60 hanks is 12,000,000,000 times the length of a Red Blood Cell, and the length of a Red Blood Cell is 0.0000000000830 times that amount.
(a.k.a. RBCs, a.k.a. haematids, a.k.a. erythrocyte, a.k.a. erythroid cells, a.k.a. red blood corpuscles) An average Red Blood Cell measures 7.5 µm (micrometers) in diameter. An average human has 20 - 30 trillion red blood cells in their body and each cell completes a circulatory lap in about 20 seconds.
It's about 15,000,000,000 times as long as a Nucleus (Cellular).
In other words, the length of a Nucleus (Cellular) is 0.0000000000670 times 60 hanks.
(for animal cell)
The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.00000000410 hanks. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume.
It's about 45,000,000,000 times as long as an E. coli Bacterium.
In other words, the length of an E. coli Bacterium is 0.0000000000230 times 60 hanks.
(Escherichia coli) (rod-shaped configuration)
An rod-shaped E. coli bacterium measures about 0.00000000140 hanks in length. A staple of biology labs, E. coli can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes.
