Yes, just to reiterate what Jack said, if you're not planning on using yarn in the near future, it's probably better to leave it in the hank. That being said, I think it has a lot to do with how tightly it is wound in the first place. I think you're probably safe if you want to wind a few hanks loosely and you're not going to use them right away. When I didn't have a swift I wound my yarn at my aunt's when I could and so I have yarn that is wound way before I use it.
