what kind of insulation is this?

I've been working in the attic after assuring myself somewhat that I don't have asbestos up there but I thought I'd ask here anyway. The house was built in 1944 in Boulder County, Colorado. It looks like some kind of fibrous pulp inside tar paper. It's R value is very low as indicated by the heat sensing camera the home inspector used. Here are some pics. Any idea what it is?
