Why was the Spinning Jenny Invented?

Answer

The spinning jenny was invented as a way for one spinner to work on an produce as many as eight spool of yarn at a time. Prior to its invention the rule was one spinner, one spool. James Hargreaves, a spinner himself, in 1764 invented the device and won the animosity of local spinners who feared his machine would make them all obsolete.
