The Llyen breed originate from Ireland in around 1750. It is believed that they were bread to gain the best meat, milk and wool from other breeds at the time.

Around the beginning of the 19th Century, the first ewes arrived in Wales on the Lleyn Peninsula, which is where they derived their name we know them by. They are warm white in colour, have a wide forehead, bright eyes and narrow towards their black nose.
