It is normal to find twigs and leaves from other plants amongst your moss. It’s also normal for the moss to be dry and brown after its trip through the mail. Your moss was treated with an organic pesticide with a very short half-life.
Revive your moss with a quick swish in water. Drain it thoroughly. Going forward, mist it a few times a week or dunk it in water every week or two. It loves humidity, so it may be happy in your bathroom. However, it does not like to be soaking wet, so do not leave it submerged. It usually does well in partial to full sun.
Nest of Moss was featured in the Hollow Tree Box (August 2022).

This was part of my first purchase from Birdmoss. I've never encountered Spanish moss in real life so when I opened the box I honestly thought it was just organic packing material, lol. Then I realized it was the Spanish moss. I received a HUGE bundle of it! I was surprised. It filled the whole box (which contained a few other items I bought in the same order). I originally thought it was a tad pricey for what was pictured, but it's truly a huge heap o' moss. Well worth it IMO.
