Bleaching yarn?

I made Yorick on Knitty for my boyfriend in Knitpick's Wool of the Andes in Cloud, and at first he said it was fine, but now he is hinting a little about wanting to know if it could be bleached. So would soaking the scarf in bleach do anything? Or is there a way to dye it whiter? Peroxide, maybe?

Also, it has been felted already several times, but there is a tiny bit of stitch definition still visible. Should I continue felting before I make it whiter? And it is a little short... so after felting, should I pin it streched out?

Sorry for so many questions, and thanks in advance for any help!
