HNW - Medieval Dyes

Speaking of dyes and stuff....At a garage sale I was lucky enough to 
score some drapes in a lovely woven-in pomegranite pattern.  
Unfortunately, they are hiddeous (in my opinion) colors.  Can someone 
give me advice on 1. finding out the fiber content of the material, 2. 
washing it/preping it to be dyed, etc.  Also, I hear from friends that 
there's a company that supplies wonderful dyestuffs...I believe it's 
called Dharma.  Does anyone have their contact information?

Much obliged,
