Not limited to a single vision, Smoky Cashmere’s color value will vary from light to deep. Affected positively by texture and special effects it is consistently inviting; whether enhancing living spaces, clothing or cars, Smoky Cashmere is thought provoking, sumptuous and a bit flirtatious; its depth entices you to explore further.
