The spinning jenny was invented by James Hargreaves. The idea came to him in 1764 but he didn't build the first spinning jenny until 1767.
Why was the spinning jenny important
The spinning jenny was important because it was the first machine of the industrial revolution designed to reduce lobar costs and increase production. The spinning jenny was a replacement for the 'spinning wheel', but some historians believe that James Hargreaves may have improved Thomas High's invention.
The spinning jenny was built in James Hargreaves' house, which was located in Stanhill, Oswaldtwistle in Lancashire, England.
James Hargreaves was born on January 8, 1721 in Blackburn, Lancashire, England and died on April 22, 1778 in Nottingham, England. James Hargreaves invented 'the spinning jenny' in 1767. James was poor and uneducated, he could not read or write. James was a weaver living in Stanhill, near Blackburn, Lancashire.
