Best Answer

In 1779, Samuel Crompton produced his "Spinning Mule". It is combined of two earlier inventions, "The Spinning Jenny" and "The Water Frame".

Drawing of the Spinning Mule.

The Mule produced a strong, fine and soft yarn. Crompton was too poor to apply for a patent and so he sold the rights to a Bolton manufacturer. The first Mules were hand-operated and could be used at home. By the 1790s, larger versions were built.

The Spinning Mule could also be driven by the new steam engines that were being produced. A large number of factory owners purchased Crompton's Mules, but because he had sold the rights for his machine, he made no money from these sales.

In 1812, Crompton reported that 4.6 million were spinning on Mules while only around 470 thousand were on other types of spinning machine.
