    Question Insulation identification question

    New to me, can anyone identify this material and/or comment on its flammability?

    Thanks in advance as always.

    Looks like an old hemp rug.

    There is hundreds of square feet installed, not only the entire underside of the roof, but there's also a similar material under the insulation at the attic floor - I've never seen anything like it.

    House was built in 1915 by the way, and there seems to been a major upgrade sometime in the 1950s.
