Can sails shrink?

I went to ready my 14 sailboat fur a sail today and while going through a test setup, I could not get the sails fully stretched across the boom and mast tracks. They have been stored in a garage in the sail bag for a few years in a dry climate which usually sees 90 degree days during the summer.

If they can shrink a bit, how do I correct this for a sail?
