Solution

The weaving of woollen cloth was a very old cottage industry in England. In the year 1738, John Kay made and patented the ‘flying shuttle’. It increased the speed of weaving. The next advanced stage was ‘spinning jenny’, a spinning frame with multiple spindles, made by James Hargreaves in England. One could work eight spindles simultaneously on this frame and it reduced the amount of labour and time of production. In the year 1769, Richard Arkwright made a more advanced spinning frame, which mechanized the process of spinning. It could produce yarns much faster with better twisting and strength. Samuel Crompton invented a more modified the spinning machine in 1779 C.E., named as ‘spinning mule’. With this machine, the speed of producing cloth increased two hundred times. In 1785 C.E. Edmund Cartwright invented the power loom. In the year 1793 a machine called ‘cotton gin’ was introduced. This machine was useful in removing cotton seeds from cotton fibers with a much greater speed.
