Aquila Carbonblacks might do the trick. Despite the name, they are more dark gray then black and the 4th string is wound.

Fremont Blacklines are another choice. Here's a link to the unwound G. They probably sell it in a set also. The Carbon Blacks are great also. https://www.elderly.com/fremont-blackline-fluorocarbon-single-unwound-low-g-ukulele-string-for-soprano-and-concert.htm

Fremont Soloist Low G - I know you said unwound. And I thought I hated wound strings, but these really are fantastic.

The Soloist is a great string.

As suggested above, the Fremont Blackline set might be what you're looking for: All unwound, black strings for all sizes with both high or low G sets. Other than that, you might want to look at Worth Brown. As the name suggests, they are dark brown, but they look almost black from afar.
