In some places, there are large fragments, as at the Holy Chapel in Paris, at Poitiers, and at Rome, where a good-sized crucifix is said to have been made of it.
In brief, if all the pieces that could be found were collected together, they would make a big shipload.
But scientifically speaking, the Shroud of Turin is a fake.
Radiocarbon dating of the shroud has revealed that it does not date to the time of Christ but instead to the 14th century; coincidentally, that's when it first appeared in the historical record.

It turns out publicity stunts abound when it comes to holy hardware.

Christ's crown Before Jesus was crucified, the Gospels say, Roman soldiers placed a crown of thorns on his head in a painful mockery of his sovereignty.
"This is because the numbers of Christians from this period was incredibly small — probably less than 7,000 by A. 100 — and because they didn't distinguish themselves materially from their Jewish brethren." Sacred scrolls One of the most important archaeological finds that actually dates to the time of Jesus may or may not provide evidence of his existence, depending on who you ask. Many Christians believe the thorny instrument of torture still exists today, albeit in pieces scattered across Europe.
Yet the Gospel testifies that a single man was able to carry it." Biblical blankets Perhaps the most famous religious relic in the world, the Shroud of Turin, is believed by many to be the burial cloth of Jesus.
