It probably depends on the yarn, but for the most part I'd say wool won't shrink..unless it's feltable, but hopefully you're using superwash wool.

My socks were too tight at the gusset, too. I solved the problem by making the heel flap about 1/2 in longer and picking up more gusset stitches. They're great now!
