Dale Baby Wool (Ull) is described as a fingering weight yarn getting gauge of 32sts=4" on US 2 (2.5mm).

Sublime baby cashmere is described as a DK weight yarn getting gauge of 22stsx28rows=4"/10cm on US 5/6 (4mm).

Seems to me that if you are substituting a thicker yarn but trying to use the smaller needles as called for in the pattern then you should be reaching gauge size (4"/10cm) with fewer stitches.
