Personally if I had wool that was fading I'd soak it in vinegar and microwave for 2 mins let them cool then 2 more mins. That should fix the dye. You can always dye them again in similar colours if they have faded alot.
I'm no expert though
You need to make sure when you dye and once they have been fixed you need wash out all the excess dye. that way the dye shouldn't fade. I wash mine in synthrapol once its been fixed that takes the exess dye out. I also wash the wool in woolite colour which can only help.
