Kyle Kuzma’s pink sweater, the one Twitter user, compared to a Thneed, has gotten more attention than perhaps any other piece of knitwear ever since he debuted it. But what does Thneed meaning imply, and why is it used to describe Kyle Kuzma’s unusual outfit?
A Thneed is a legitimate (fictional) element in Dr Seuss’ universe, notably in The Lorax narrative — it is not a term used to describe Kyle Kuzma’s sweater.
The first Thneed in the Lorax animation is a giant oversized knitted sweater, which Kyle Kuzma and his stylist “had no remorse” about him donning before the game on Monday evening.
Why should they, after all? It’s simply an oversized sweater.
However, some people do not believe it was worthwhile.
All folks wondering what Kyle Kuzma is wearing tonight have clearly never read The Lorax.

Two days ago, Kuzma posted a photo of himself wearing the outfit to his Instagram account. “My Man, WTF are you are doing,” actor and comedian Michael Rapaport commented in the comments.
Former player Isiah Thomas remarked, “lol, that one ain’t it,” while fellow basketball player Sindarius Thornwell advised him to “leave that s**t in Hollywood.”
Thneed Meaning On TikTok Explained
In truth, a Thneed can be anything as long as it is crocheted from the Truffula Tree’s leaf.
Truffula trees feature a huge tuft that is “softer than silk” and has striped bark.
The trees come in a variety of colours, including red, orange, yellow, and pink.
Thneeds can take the form of substantial pink sweaters, such as Kuzma’s, but due to the softness and seeming strength of the Truffula’s tuft.
The cloth can also be used to make umbrellas, curtains, socks, and pillows.
Why Is #Thneed Trending?
‘Thneed’ is trending because it symbolises products derived from sustainable natural resources.
A Thneed is a multi-purpose thread extracted from the Truffula Tree’s leaf.
It is “a-fine-something-that-all-people-need,” according to the Once-ler.
Aside from those above, how much does a thneed cost? The Thneed is retailed for $4.79.
I guess he met up with the Once-ler. #Thneed https://t.co/m84tGVbNfK pic.twitter.com/VcVLMMHHRe

It might also be used for rugs, pillows, bedding, curtains, or bicycle seat coverings.
What Is a Thneed and How Do I Make One?
The first step is to loom! Using any soft yarn, make four arms. It may be as long as you like, but each one should be around the same size.
Step 2: Join them all together using knitting or looming. Make a circle in the centre.
Step 3: If You’re Looming Them Together. On the yellow loom, add the stitches from each “arm” or “strip.”
