I already ripped the tags out of these pants, so I don't
know what the fabric is.

Probably not, I'm sure Kay will jump in here with a
dissertation on long vs. short fiber cotton. IIRC, it's the
lack of *quality* of the cotton fibers which cause pilling.
At any rate, a simple solution (if you love the garment
otherwise) would be:
