What was spinning Jenny?

Answer :

It was invented by James Hargreaves; the spinning jenny was a machine that speeded up the process of spinning. Thus, reducing the demand for labour. What was done by 10 workers could be done by one on a single spinning jenny and many spindles could be spun on it with loads of bundles of cotton.
