The Spinning Jenny was invented in 1764 by James Hargreaves, its purpose was to reduced the amount of work needed to make yarn. The reason that James Hargreaves invented the Spinning Jenny was because the demand for yarn was at its highest. The coal industry had a major part with the steam engine because it was the only source of a reliable fuel. As more and more steam engines where developed, more demand for coal was needed.
