Help identify. Is it weed block or roof tar paper?

I've had this roll of material for a long time. I can't seem to identify it. I thought it might be weed block matting, but might be roof material or ?
It is thin.and fibrous and rather brittle.

I will make a guess. It looks like roofing felt.

I agree, looks like felt to me to.
Weed block would be porous.

It is definitely roofing felt paper or what they sometimes call tar paper. I used to have some in my shed and might even still have some hard to say I am rarely in that shed.
