I don't know where you can find the black color. If you cannot find it, consider coloring it yourself. You can use a coloring pen similar to a Sharpie to get the color you need. It may not show up solid black, but should be dark enough for what you desire.

I found a black squirrel hide sold at Gander Mountain. (I bought it at the store, not online) I do not know if it was natural or dyed black though.

The best way to obtain such an item on a regular basis is probably to go on hunting boards which service areas where the black squirrel variant exist and find a local hunter whose willing to assassinate a bunch for you and send you the cured skins. You also might try contacting wildlife control contractors in the same regions and negotiating a similar deal.

Here's a link which will provide some locations.
