    The most common method of identifying fabric content is by burning a small swatch.  Different fibers have very different odors and the residue looks different.  Some turns to ash, some forms a hard plastic-like bead, etc.  The above site will give you some help getting started.  You can Google "identify fabric" and find several other sources. It isn't always possible to be certain what you have.
