New strings stretch the most immediately after stringing and after that continue stretching to various degrees depending on material. Gut stays the most consistent throughout its life after the initial break-in. Some stringers will pre stretch strings before stringing. You can step on new strings with your foot to break it in a little but don't step too hard or you might pop a gut.
