Is it possible to stretch wool socks?

DS (5) has to wear knee high wool mix socks for school hmm. The pairs we bought last year still fit in terms of shoe size, but over the year they have shrunk a bit and also lost all flexibility, so that they are a nightmare to get on and off. Is there anything I can do to stretch them again? I'd love not to have to buy new if possible because they are about £6 a pair!!

Or failing that, any suggestions for how best to wash them if I buy new ones so that the same thing doesn't happen again.

Thanks smile
