Are these cotton twill pants ruined from the dryer?

I have some cotton pants
that I just washed for the first time (prior to now, I've worn only wool pants that were dry cleaned or jeans that were very sparingly machine washed). The new cotton pants were washed on the cold cycle and came out of the dryer (warm or hot, can't remember, but the pants are machine washable/dryable) with large patches of faded-looking spidery marks on the legs. I've ironed the pants, with lots of sprayed water, but the marks are still there. Have I ruined them, or is there something that can be done to get them back to a nice even navy blue all over?
