      Yes to both of your questions.
      I used Rit Dye,
      Black (really a very dark purple, think eggplant) for the silk gauze.
      Tan for the hammock.

      It's easy but somewhat time consuming.
      I took the advise of BFornshell and washed both items first.
      This gets rid of the sizing which might interfere with dye uptake.

      Hope this helps.
