Bags are divided into internal compartments to to prevent settling.  The
baffles between compartments are made of very thin material, and the ones
in down bags can get ripped apart during improper washing/drying
procedures, by heavy clumps of wet feathers bouncing around.  Hanging a bag
should cause no problem; if the filling appears to settle, reverse the ends.
