I would think self-adhesive felt would work well protecting but may not meet the slip resistance requirement.

Self-adhesive rubber would meet both of your requirements; protection and slip resistance. A couple of Christmases ago I received self-adhesive rubber sheets about 6” x 18” x 1/8” (I think) and applied the rubber to shop-made push pads for controlling material at the table saw, router table, etc. It grips well and the adhesive adheres quite well. Unfortunately, since it was a Christmas gift I do not have the source.

I did a search for self-adhesive rubber and came up with rubber floor protectors. These products may be too thick for your application so you may have to spend some time searching for self-adhesive rubber sheets. Here are the self-adhesive rubber products I found in my quick search:

Another possible alternative is cork, although I believe rubber grips better. It can be found as a self-adhesive product or, if not self-adhesive, can be applied with contact cement after the finish has been applied and cured on the project. Here is self-adhesive vice jaw liners evidently incorporating rubber with cork:
