Silk Scarf Project

This is a silk warp that my sister dyed over a decade ago. My challenge is to find a compatible weft and to weave a scarf out of it.

I have ordered 6 different colors to test for the weft. None of them look right to me. The warp has a kind of faded denim base look and the selected potential weft yarns look too vibrant and saturated. So weaving challenge #1 is what weft will I choose and will it work with the warp?

Luckily, you can never have too much silk….
