These were on the same warp; the warp is Cascade 220 orange and Patton‘s classic merino in black.  The weft is Aade Lõng 8/1 black lilac doubled.

Also, I wove another scarf in Plymouth Yarn’s Boku. I knew it would be a quick weave — and it was – 4 hrs start to finish, with a 5 epi sett; it’s a nice, loose weave, which I fulled a little bit to make it fluffy.  I listed it on Etsy, then posted to Facebook, and fifteen minutes later it had a new home!
