This is a Spinning Jenny




It's a bit like a spinning wheel with several strands. I wasn't very good when invented. You should look it up. It has an interesting story behind it. Well, I thought so. There was a fear of change, loss of jobs, this whole drama thing attached to it. Interesting.

Well, that would explain why it stumped me!

I have used a spinning wheel and a loom - rigid and soft heddle both, but I still don't know exactly what this monstrosity does. :-)

Very cool.
