Any sort of DK yarn should work as long as you are getting the gauge (tension) specified: 22 sticthes and 28 rows to 4 inches.

You might want to find an online review of the Sidar Eco to find out what sort of texture it is to help narrow down your selection.

Most baby yarn is thinner than DK, so you would need to sub another DK or a sport yarn. A thin worsted like Caron’s Simply Soft might work too.
