Tar paper vs felt


Please pardon my ignorance with a dumb question but what is the difference between tar paper and felt?
I was reading the plan for my project and it called for felt. I was wondering: " am I covering a roof or a pool table?"

Both the same product. Cover felt with tar and you have tar paper, nick name felt.

Thanks for explaining. They'll do anything to confuse us amateurs.
