Algea-brella

Circa 2011/2012 I purchased some Sunbrella fabric that has a fuzzy inside. I don't see this fabric option on the website, but I didn't search all that hard. I liked that the inside surface would be soft, since I used it to cover varnished dorades and hatches. Originally, the color matched the other Sunbrella. Over time, it grew greener and greener. It's not an unattractive color, but it no longer matches the bimini, stack pack etc. I tried mild bleach, I've washed multiple times followed by sun bleaching on my home clothes line. The green tint remains. Any suggestions? The fabric is wearing well, where the rest of the (admittedly much older) sunbrella is due replacement next year. If I want all the fabric to match, do I need to replace the good-condition (albeit green) fuzzy-on-the-inside fabric, or is there a way to restore the color to the "fuzzy underside" beige sunbrella? I do have an algea problem on the boat, lines are green, so I think it's algea not just an odd photo reaction. Photo shows original fabric (left), greened stuff, then underside (fuzzy side) of the original.

That didn't work, at least with Chrome.
