Restoring and Stabilizing a Vintage Black Velvet Painting

I have a black velvet painting that is 50 years old. Is there a way to restore the velvet? The nap is coming off. I am thinking there might be something I can apply to the back of the velvet.

We have a very, very old painting of a sunset in brown, beige, and yellow hues on velvet. It's so old that some of the dust from the velvet comes off if you brush with your hands. Any good ideas how to preserve and clean it?
