I would def wash the red skeins first before I knitted it with a pale colour. I know dye is more colour-fast than in the old days but how awful if it ran into the pale colour.
Hand wash the skeins in warm water with washing powder or whatever and rinse well in warm water. I think best to get rid of the excess dye now!
